“High quality food despite the challenges”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

As we sat down for a dinner the power went out. There was no thunderstorm or event that would indicate a reason, but we were suddenly all in dark. When we asked what, if anything, we could order off the menu we were told that everything except the pork was available (not quite sure why, but it didn't matter).
We were a little skeptical that we could get a decent meal, but our expectations were exceeded when the food was brought out. Everyone enjoyed a well prepared meal - and thankfully the power and A/C kicked in at the end of the meal (it was getting warm).
The staff never appeared flustered and continued to give great service. I figure if they can marshal through in those conditions, they can handle anything.

“High End Romantic Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

High end meal, perfect for special occassions and romance. The chef is creative and the servers always put on the extra touches. Wine list is pretty good, also.
