Had the best filet ever! It was melt in your mouth good! They also include lots of extras: veggie tray, shrimp cocktail, garlic bread, soup, and salad. We had wonderful service. Expect to pay $40-45 per meal, but well worth the price,

We came here because of the Sideways movie with no real expectations but it was great. Steaks cooked to perfection. Service lovely. Not really a tourist place which we enjoyed a lot. Just sat down and tucked in.
