We enjoyed the 4 course dinner without the wine p. Each course was prepared well and our waitress was very knowledgeable regarding preparations and ingredients. She recommended a drink called "smoky and the bandit." It was "smoky" unusual (well worth it.)

The food and service was superb. It was a group dinner and the wine pairing was exquisite. The service was spot on. I had fish and salad and pasta - everything was divine. I would definitely return.
