Been to English’s about 5 times over the last 10 years. Always enjoyed it. This time just oysters and wine at the bar while the kids had a lemonade. The bar/restaurant manager served and explained the differenct oysters, friendly and professional. Will be back.

Perfect for a birthday celebration. We had The Menu Epicurien: a 5 course gastronomic delight that had excellent choice to satisfy our palates. And the waiter was very attentive without being intrusive. We will definitely be back.
