Lovely menu. Great hostess. Attentive wait staff. A culinary delight. The menu choices are remarkable. The appetizer and salad selection is huge. Each dish is made to order. Delicious and nothing like your mom would make for you. Give it a try.

We went here with two other couples as we do often for dinner. Seating is cramped and uncomfortable, the food was okay, but the service was great and friendly.
