Our group met there this evening. We had a great meal and excellent service! I had one of the best Filet Mignon I’ve eaten. The honey cheesecake at dessert was amazing!

Four of us were out for a birthday celebration and decided to go with the Chef's Five Course meal with wine pairings. Don't mind ordering stupid expensive from time to time but this just made me feel stupid.
