We went with 6 people to celebrate my son's 17th birthday. The bread/herbed olive oil they brought out as we ordered was a tasty beginning. We all ordered a salad or an appetizer, with two pairs opting to share salads (sharing incurred a $1.50 split fee). Our main courses were coq au vin (two ordered this), a seafood risotto special, spinach gnocchi, spinach ravioli, and a veal dish. They were good-sized portions, and those I tasted (the gnocchi and coq au vin), were good but not outstanding. For dessert ($7.95 each), we ordered flan, chocolate sundae, "Helen of Troy," creme brulee, an apple strudel special, and fresh berries. My mom, who is Spanish in background, said the flan was good, and my younger son enjoyed the creme brulee. I was disappointed that the "Helen of Troy," described as containing baklava, gelato, berries, and chocolate sauce along with orange liqueur, did not have more baklava. I thought the items would be separated on a plate, but instead they were all mixed together in a sundae glass, and I could hardly find the baklava, which is listed as a home-made specialty. The strudel was a generous portion and looked delicious. The fresh berries were a small portion and seemed quite overpriced. My son who had the birthday had the sundae, with a candle on top, and a wonderfully harmonized rendition of "Happy Birthday" sung to him by waitstaff and accompanied by a saxophone. All of the desserts were beautifully presented. Still, though, I was a little shocked when our bill came to almost $300 for the 6 of us (we did have a bottle of red wine at about $37 on top of everything else, and the tip was calculated automatically and included in the total). The table was also quite a tight squeeze for 6. We did enjoy the saxophone/bass music in the background, fairly good food, and the good presentation of the food.
