Response from Lynne C | Reviewed this property |
Have been there with someone who is gluten sensitive, and she things on the menu that satisfied her, however you should check with the restaurant directly to make sure this is still the case. Bon Appetit!!
Do you have any special seatings (music?) for New Year's 2016?

No, we won't be having live music this year. It's just too small a venue for a band. We will, however, be having a special three course menu. Reservations are going quickly!
