Pretentious and over-priced. Poor quality food from over-rated chef. Serving staff courteous and fine, but what a waste of money on less than satisfactory food. Very DISAPPOINTED.

Fabulous waiter JJ took very good care of us. Absolutely delicious Alfredo shrimp pasta and the Sampler appetizer gave us a taste of crab cakes, stuffed mushrooms, shrimp and steak. The homemade dressing and bread was outstanding. A nice place to enjoy a nice dinner.
