We attended a wine club dinner, so we did not try the normal menu or wine list. We had a fixed 5 course dinner with matching wines. All of the food was very good and the service was great. We definitely want to return.

Everything was special from the broiled shrimp appetizer to the salmon and steaks, the fantastic deserts. Even the veggies were tasty Melanie is a pastry chef and her husband is a master chef. So glad these two found each other. Connie ZAPPITELLI. NIAGARA Falls
