My vegan wife loves this place. The atmosphere matches the care given to each plate of food. They have a great wine selection and fresh, hand-crafted dishes of seafood and steaks. The service is also friendly.

We've been here several time before but not in a year or so. However, this is still a very good dining experience. Great ownership and attentive personnel. Wonderful food. We had the filet and the rack of lamb--both were excellent. Will certainly return.
