The food was nice quality and fresh, but nothing special. The prices were high for average food. I would not return to this restaurant again.

Way overpriced. The balsamic vinegar was horrendous: the lobster (or crab) ravioli was bad and $35. All in all a $185 meal for 2 adults and 2 kids - we were disgusted. The service was disinterested. On a positive note, it is centrally located in...More
