“Revisit - Better than the first time.”
Reviewed January 30, 2006

I am glad to see 17 moving up on the list. On my recent visit I had an excellent time. I ordered the filet with their macaroni and cheese. The steak was cooked to perfection with the right amount of seasonings and tenderness. The mac and cheese was to die for, I do not remember the cheeses used but they also had a hint of truffles in there. The service was prompt and the timing of the food could not be better.

Our party enjoyed a bottle of Gary Ferrell from Russian River Valley recommended by our waiter, Mark . I highly advise visitors to request Mark, because he is very accommodating and does not impose on your dinner. He know the wines and can match a wine to your preference.

Thank John V
