We did the Four Course which was a great experience with friends. The Chocolate will be great to stop in for dessert sometime. The cheese was fantastic. Even the salads were great!

Daughter, daughters-in-law and I were here for dessert at 9:30. We had a delightful waiter who was entertaining, enthusiastic and attentive. And the chocolate fondue was delicious. Would love to try the cheese fondue the dinner menu another time.

This is, hands down, my favorite place to eat, as well as my husband’s. Everything is great about this place, even down to the salad. You must try the tangy house dressing. One of our favorite chocolates is the banana foster, although honestly we’ve never...More

Hello, the roof top of the parking garage unfortunately does not have an elevator, only stairs. Our restaurant does have our own personal elevator at ground level though. Hope this helps!
