Pros: - Nicely decorated, soft lighting, good ambiance. - Baked fish was good, and vegetables were perfectly cooked. - Roast chicken was decent, and mashed potatoes were good. Cons: - Massive portions. Fine dining should be about quality, not quantity. - Tomato pie was mediocre....More

Went Friday afternoon Thanksgiving. Service was prompt and friendly and the menu choices good. Brie filled pastries were a special touch. Enjoyed a bottle of their private label wine.
