Having dinner with friends in a nice place with good food is always a pleasure. If you add to all of this an impeccable service and Jerry ad the piano, you will end having the perfect night.

Great live music, over dinner, dessert and/or drinks. Reasonable minimum that amounts to 2 drinks per person. Have been here many times as a local, and have always been pleased.
