The perfect excuse for the ladies to dress nicely. Reception included arias by a soprano. Violin accompanied our dinner. Champagne, 3 glasses of wine and 5 courses - $100 ea. Beautifully presented. Memorable special evening done to perfection.

Want a taste of a different cuisine come here and enjoy a taste of France. Food and wines are really good. The ambiance is nice but can get noisy making conversation tough. If you ask they serve chili-guaros!
