Our family had one of our best meals ever at this restaurant. There was a piano player who was very good and made the meal more memorable (they may only be there on Friday and Saturday nights).

Fantastic meal coupled with great service and a beautiful vista of the river. The food is the best I have encountered in the city. A little off the beaten path it is well worth the trip along the river.

Had an amazing burger (locally raised Wagyu beef) with frites for lunch with friends. Great service and a great view of the river (even in winter).
