Went to Fernando's Saturday night. Food and presentation was excellent. You can bring your own wine. The place is not noisy at all. The waiter was very attentive. Dishes are very reasonably priced. Definitely will come back.

I want to meet two friends for lunch who I haven't seen in 50 years. This place will be about the same amount of time for all of us to drive to. I want to know if it will be a place that we won't be rushed as we might spend three hours eating and talking. Or should we go to a diner?
