Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and an enjoyable dinner. The menu was small but offered variety. The French onion soup was delicious. We came to dinner at 7:45 and the special was sold out. We would visit again.

Slow service. Soup came out with entrees. Pretty view. Not a very exciting menu for being in the wine and culinary center. Just average. Not horrible but did not come close to what I expected. We would not go back nor recommend it to anyone....More
