We had a great dining experience. The wine was wonderful. The waiter attentive. The food was good and the price was not overly expensive.

Great view, which would be even better in the fall. My wife had their version of surf and turf: two huge diver scallops... More

Ordered drinks and an appetizer, it took quite a while to get them, when we finally did the appetizer was minus flavor. It took so long for our dinners to come, we both ordered the pasta sampler, when it finally arrived it was cold, and lacked the ingredients that were suppose to be in it. We were also charged a...

My husband and I have eaten here twice. The food has been great both times. The salmon is delicious. They have a great outdoor area that looks like it'd be lots of fun in the Summer.

We sampled 6 appetizers and they were all wonderful --- I... More

My wife and I took our daughter out for dinner before she heads back to college. We had a drink before dinner which was okay. We got a "taste" of the green spaghetti which was delicious and my wife had them create a mixed greens salad with Caesar salad dressing which was very good. Girls ordered flatiron steaks that were...

Each course is accompanied by a wine pairing. (You can book the experience without a wine tasting if you prefer) The plates were wonderful. The attention and experience of dining in the kitchen was unique. Worth the price for a special occasion.
