I was there with 3 friends, for the dinner. New Orleans mixed grill was decent, average quality; the shrimps were overcooked. The recipe for smashed potatoes could be improved for sure. Good serving and the wines variety could not compensate the food (ordinary) taste.

Wonderful dinner, great wine list! Be careful with over doing the appetizer's and salad because you MUST save room for dessert. Filet was fantastic as was the salmon. One of our group had the halibut and raved about it. But the 4 layer chocolate cake...More
