They have a special for two meals and a bottle of wine for under $40. A total bargain for some really good food. We had four different entrees and they were all excellent. The service was also outstanding.

They did but they unfortunately shut down, they say due to a difficult landlord hiking the rent. Hopefully they find new premises soon as it was a great place.
