Beautiful restaurant, good food, great atmosphere. A bit on the pricey side, so won't be taking the kiddos with us next time - but they were wonderful with our kids while there.

We hadn't been here for awhile and thought we would try it again. Good food, a little pricey for what you get. Pleasant atmosphere, good wait staff. Good for date night or pre Sooner Theatre. Get's a little noisy when the trains roll by.More
