This restaurant has a wonderful menu but I particularly enjoyed the beef bourgonion. Try the margaritas. Service was first rate.

My husband and I really enjoy this restaurant. The food is delicious, the service is great and the atmosphere is welcoming. We enjoyed the fish fillet in a leek sauce last night and it was amazing!
