Had a nice dinner tonight with our family (two small children). Easy to snag a reservation, and the dining experience was fun for the whole family. Good food and great service.

I realize this is one of those places you go for the experience and we visited yesterday with 3 kids (2 ate meals, 1 is a newborn). It was very difficult to make the kids meals and try to eat and have conversation between adults at the same time. We tried cheese and chocolate fondue so we didn't actually sit... More

Took almost two hours to get in and out. Had to complain to get out quickly. Server was not very attentive for just 2 people. Food was excellent and very romantic setting. Only complaint was lack of attention from our server.
