“OK Dinner”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Atmosphere is very nice. Service very good. Food was just okay. We ordered the lobster thermador. It was nothing spectacular. Probably would not return. A bit on the pricey side also.

“Great flavours”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

A fine restaurant with good flavours in each dish. Caesar salad had real bacon and large slivers of Parmesan. The bread was sweet bread with orange tarragon butter. Seafood linguine was excellent as was the stuffed haddock. The long-island iced tea was excellent!!

“Wonderful lobster and out of this world desserts”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Great service and food. Had the 1 & 1/2 pound lobster and it was worth the 40$. Sitting at a table of 10 we still received nice personal service. We all shared the desserts and each one was an example of succulent sweetness. The portions were not too small, not too large, just right.

“My husband liked it . I found it just OK”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

I hate garlic so I am always careful to order food that doesn't have it. My meal was served on top go garlic mashed potatoes that weren't listed on menu. They did change it to rice. My dessert was terrible. My husband really liked his meal.
