We enjoyed the cocktails and wine. Every plate is hand picked for its special taste. From farm to table is the only way to go.

We celebrated 5 birthdays here and the food was worthy of a big celebration. I had the filet and it was cooked very well and came with delicious sides. The served a birthday cake that we brought as well.
