Very unique setting. Desserts are great, coffees and liqueurs delicious too. Can be noisy by the pianist, but requests are taken. Servers very attentive. Try the specialties of the House.

This dessert room has more variety and quality ingredients than anyplace I've ever been. And every one of their offerings come out looking and tasting fabulous. Great selection and a good variety of after dinner drinks, as well.

Excellent place to go for dessert and after dinner drinks. Each table is sexy in its own little private "room", making the atmosphere all that more special. Service is outstanding and the piano music sets a perfect mood.
