We decided to have a local friend recommend a spot and he hit a home run! The restaurant itself is somewhat small but it makes up for it with great service and food. Our group was treated like kings and the selections are awesome. The...More

Delicious seafood and steak. Want to try something different? How about Elk and Aligator? Solid wine list with some great California choices. Wait staff works hard but keep things very friendly and efficient. Nice corners for romantic evenings. Good choice for a celebration too.

Had the tuna for an appetizer and it was delicious. Service was good. Had the pork medallions for dinner and they were good. Dining room is small and intimate and overall our experience was good.
