“Fun, delicious, great menu, fantastic staff”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

what a great restaurant. The meal was fantastic.
One of the neat things about the restaurant is the 'surprise menu'. you have no idea what you are ordering. Our friends ordered the surprise appetizer they received seared scallops. - amazing.
I ordered the surprise main course and received 'chicken filled with a pesto cream' it was on a bed of asparagus which was on a tart...OMG it was fantastic.

The servers always make the evening. The service was fast, friendly.
