Staff was great, food delicious. Great place to dine with friends. Love the old world vibes of the place. They have an accordion player to add to the fun. They also have their own parking lot which is a bonus.

We shared the Mushroom/Spinach blintz to start. For our meal we shared the Peasant Permini and Cabbage Rolls. The addition of wild rice in the cabbage rolls was a very good thing. For dessert we did the Chocolate Ganache Tart. We will be back
