My boyfriend and I went here for a late dinner and had a fabulous time. The room had dimmed lights and it was very cozy. Nothing fancy, so don't go here if you're looking for fine dining. The food tasted great, and their desserts even...More

A gem. Perfect hangout with or without dinner. Classy, comfortable and one of the beast value restaurants I've ever visited. A+
