The mashed potatoes taste like chalk. Seafood risotto, NOT good at all. Tenderloin tips did not behave, or taste like tenderloin. Portions small. Guess they are getting cheap. Will NOT return.

There are often specials meals but I did not see this advertised while last dining there. Give them a call and they should have the lastest info and reservations can then be made if they do!
