Was surprised this restaruant was in a shopping mall, no exterior windows to give you a hint of the elegance inside. Open the door and you are pleasantly rewarded by the decor and the food. Our party of 8 enjoyed the steak, duck and snapper.

This is a very busy restaurant. Higher end menus and excellent presentations. If you ask for the Sunset Menu between 5 pm and 6:30 pm, you can get a high quality meal and great service for about 1/2 the cost. I highly recommend it.

Fine Dining in holiday lit setting but casual dress was seen. We went for the Early Dining menu, unsure of the quality and no doubts afterwards. It was crowded even during the off-season and the food was great. (Sorry for pics of partially eaten plates!)

Yes they do. You have to ask for it. $15. I would recommend upgrading two dollars for the she crab soup. Also get the calamari for appetizer at five dollars.
