We had our family Sunday supper and thoroughly enjoyed the prime rib feast. Generous portions of well prepared ad seasoned dishes. Wine list is diverse although a little pricey. Looking forward to coming back to try the regular menu.

We were a party of 3 (mom dad and 1 teenage son) and had the tasting menu. Pricey but delicious and certainly an adequate amount of food (and 6 course with the tasting menu so all in all a pretty good value). Nice cocktails as...More
