Went for lunch. Took a while to be served and we were the only ones there. The place smelled moldy as you walked to the restroom. The restroom had a lot to be desired.The food was excellent but expensive enough.

Would have loved to eat here. Made a reservation using OpenTable (with a direct link from the restaurant's website) for Easter Sunday. We drove 30 minutes to check out this restaurant only to arrive to be told that they don't get notified when reservations are...More
