Great food, wonderful service with attention to detail. We especially enjoyed the Bananas Foster for dessert - it was prepared at the table. We went for my birthday (dinner).

This was the second time we have visited. Last time as a couple and this time with family. There is a lovely ambience to the restaurant and we all had a wonderful relaxed meal. The service was a little slow at times but we weren't in a hurry and the food was definitely worth waiting for. We enjoyed the pianist... More

Fabulous food and beverage with excellent waitstaff. Not fast food, so don't plan to be in and out. You will want to linger

Good food and great service. The atmosphere was a touch stuffy but friendly enough. I enjoyed all the dishes I tried but the strip steak really stood out. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The tortellini with ham had nice, full bodied cream sauce to compliment it and the eggplant stuffed with crab and ricotta was delicate yet bold on... More

We needed a break for the crowds and buffet at Legoland. This restaurant was a wonderful choice. It's an upscale restaurant with excellent food and service. We brought two elementary school girls with us and the staff accommodated them very nicely. We enjoyed the piano music and were asked for song requests. (The pianist also played the accordion briefly.) The... More

A friend of mine was retiring and I assisted in making the restaurant reservations and dinner plans. I worked with Kyndra from the restaurant. She was outstanding to work with. She advised me how they could accommodate our group of about twenty people. We would be in a small private area off the main restaurant. She then worked with me... More

Both food and service were exceptional. Antipasto plate had a great cheese variety and the the meats were perfectly sliced. Entree was aged angus beef - almost fork tender and perfectly cooked. For a great upscale dinner in Winter Haven....THIS IS THE PLACE! Please patron and keep it going.

Thank rcmcgourk
