You must order the Beef Wellington. Absolutely magnificent meal and impeccable service. Quiet atmosphere that encourages conversation. Wait staff watches your table rather than interrupting you with “Everything okay?” Did I mention the Beef Wellington? Truly excellent.

First class dining from elevation overlooking the Riverwalk. You can seat indoors and outdoors and due to the elevation you can have that romantic interlude, a business dinner or a fun-filled evening viewing down the Riverwalk.

Interesting little place right on Riverwalk next to Hilton. They have seating outside, first floor and second floor. Although that sounds big it isn’t. The outside area was not open because of weather in the 50s. We sat downstairs. If you want quiet and easy-going...More
