Desiring to show my significant other a special dinner; food, service and venue. Le Relais has the reputation of being very pricey but good. The restaurant is located in the old terminal building of Bowman Field yet richly appointed. The service was prompt, the waiter...More

A great restaurant for fine food and a relaxing ambiance. It is one of our favorite date night restaurants. It's an experience that couldn't be recreated at any other location than an airport hanger.
