The food is very good. The service is also. I found the place draft and that took away a bit from the meal. It is on the pricey side, but well worth it.

The appetizers were good, had the scallops and the beet salad and both were delicious. Once we got to the entree we were disappointed. My husband had the lamb and found it bland, I had the beef striploin and found it tough. We sat in...More
