This was an awesome experience. The waiters dressed in tuxedos, the unique old house setting tv. But the food was the star of the show. Our waiter Max provided impeccable service. That and the amazing food added up to a wonderful experience.

It is indeed a long time since we had such a great meal. As former Cincinnatians, this was on par with the former Le Maisonette. The beef Wellington would make any chef proud. Our captain was outstanding. Polished and knowledgeable. From Appetizers to desserts, perfect...More
