Next time we'll plan to stay here! Wonderful meal, fresh seafood and the crispy duck, spot on with awesome service from Otto! The wine menu was extensive and the well manicured grounds gorgeous, which made for a romantic and well remembered evening.

Simply lovely setting and filled with charm. Delicious entrees had by all. Rack of lamb was outstanding. Our server Otto a delight. Only low point was the seafood appetizer we ordered for the table. Pretty average, not worth the price.

This was my second visit for dinner, the first was a business dinner that was five star. I took my wife this visit, and much to my profound dismay our server was wearing a hideous nose ring. I could not look at her and needless...More

They have a very lovely menu. Unless you are super picky, you should be quite content with the options. I had mentioned previously their vegetarian option because it's rare when it's exceptional as this was.
