The food is excellent, service impeccable, and the bar is amazing. All the food was delicious and hot when served. Mike, the waiter we usually have, anticipated our every need and desire.

We went on Thanksgiving evening. Service and food was good, prices fair. Not sure I would classify as fine dining.
