“Super service and food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The food was wonderful and fresh. My wife and I were not particularly hungery, but we wanted to try it while we stayed. It was wonderful. They even alowed us to split the food which can be difficult in these high end restaurants. They did it with a smile and it was great.

“Great Dining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

I bit pricy, but well worth the cost. I loved the menu, and couldn't resist the Mongolian Veal Chop. Outstanding! Great wine list and unbelievable servive. If you are in the area and want a first rate dinner, go!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

I believe the dish I ordered was the pork Havana. It was absolutely amazing! Never have I had pork done like this before.

For dessert I had a chocolate cake dish, that had a bit of spice to it. Sounded odd at first, but it was absolutely amazing.

If you can get David as your waiter, I highly recommend doing so. He was very knowledgeable with everything on the menu. As well as him being wonderful to my 6 year old daughter. He made our dining experience very enjoyable.
