We had a light meal and good wine and were intrigued by watching the skaters perform. It was a thoroughly relaxing atmosphere, and the staff did not rush us as we watched.

Love the restaurant ... great for business and for social dining. The menu was excellent where you three appetizers, select a main course, and then a variety of desserts. Love the hustle and bustle of the restaurant
