When the original owner ran this place it was 5 stars all the way. Another owner took over for about 3 years, slipped to 4 then 3 stars, closed down in late 2012. I wish a culinary chef would buy this place and reopen it,...More

Our experience at Casual Elegance was one we will never forget. The atmosphere was romantic, the music was good, and the waiter made us feel like we were the only people in the place. We both had fresh fish and shared a bottle of wine....More
