We enjoyed our meal so much! Highly recommend. The steak /surf and turf was excellent, the sea bass was tasty and well prepared as was the dessert. Beautiful presentation, lovely atmosphere and we so enjoyed the piano music.

The food is very good and they have the prices to match. I had Filet Mignon for $34, (a previous reviewer said it was the best ever). It was made right and did come out worth the price. The atmosphere was nice, but an odd...More
