Wife wanted to experience the lobster mac and cheese, and was not disappointed. I had the scallops, well prepared, tasty presentation, filling but not overpowering. Treated well by staff, personalized table card for our anniversary, complimentary champagne, complimentary chocolate fudge and candy Happy Anniversary desert
