Great duck dish for main. Stuffed mushrooms for entree was great too. David and all the singers fantastic vocals. Jeff Buckley would be proud of David’s version of Hallelujah. Really enjoyed the music. The haters providing bad reviews must be competitors with sour grapes.

This restaurant has it all- the view, the food and the music. Our main meals were amazing but our desserts were not as good as the mains. Overall it was an amazing experience. I just wished David sang more operatic songs. Will be back again-...More
