Took my lovely wife there on our 15th anniversary and had a fantastic time, great table in a corner at the window looking out on street life, superb service, wonderful staff and delicious food. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for.

We went to Rooney's with friends, and had a wonderful meal. In fact, we enjoyed everything so much we wondered how this hidden gem had fallen off our radar. My husband had the mixed grill of beef tenderloin, quall and garlic sausage. He loved every...More
