We were seated right away and had a nice table surrounded by their wine cabinets. We all ordered drinks (sangria, wine, and Stella Artois). My husband ordered the Seafood Risotto while I ordered the Moroccan Chicken. Both of our entrees were very good. The surprise...More

This was a wonderful venue for "getting together" because the music in the background is not too loud and the decor is updated and comfortable. The food ranges from appetizers to full dinners and I love that many of the dinners come in two sizes,...More

Been here many times. Good location. Nice atmosphere. Price to value is excellent. Moderately priced. Tomato Bisque was very good. The steak and frites very consistent. Service attentive. Glad to get rid of ordering by iPad. I prefer people. Good product.
