We had dinner Friday night here, the terrace overlooking Saranac river. Loved the duck liver pate appetizer, the skate and shrimp entree was delicious and so was the lamb kafta. They were very prompt and courteous, a perfect evening!

We have eaten in this restaurant several times now and love it. The menu is varied frequently so there is always something new to order off the menu. We came with a large group one time which gave us the option to order a wide...More
