“A+ service & atmosphere B+ food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

This is a gorgeous setting with impeccable service but the food should be fantastic for the price. It wasn't. My Price fixe dinner had excellent hors d'eouvres and wine but pretty ordinary beef stew "beef bourguignon". My wife's appetizer was straight out of Safeway.

“Thanksgiving”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The food was OK but overpriced for a standard Thanksgiving Turkey dinner. It might be worth trying on a non holiday.

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

A bit spendy, but worth it for the atmosphere and convenience. Service was top notch, wine list extensive and food delicious. I got the caprese salad and scallops. They have a 3 course meal with paired wine if you are up for it.

“Delicious Food, Beautiful Atmosphere, Wonderful Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

I think my title says it all. The waitstaff was very patient with the seven women in my party who wanted separate checks. The choices of salads was more than expected, and all the food was delicious. My favorite was the taste of Creme Brulee that I had. It would be worth the 6 hours on a plane to go back for more!!
