We had a Prix Fixe menu for an event we attended. The restaurant staff and food were awesome! We were in a separate event room that was a great space.

This is a very nice place to have a family dinner or a great place to have a business lunch. I think it could be quite romantic too. The food is absolutely the best I have had in a long time.
