It was awesome. The cocktail was a worthy start and a promise of the following dinner. The food was great, the wines were the perfect companion. The service was attentive. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Really enjoyable food, bit 1 hour including dessert is a bit rushed. :) Mayne the service was too good. The cauliflower and tartare were superb as far as appetizers go; I would pass on the oyster mushrooms next time. The lamb saddle main was superb.
