I attended a wedding here. It was really nice. Swanky decor. The sculpture gardens are nice but I wouldn't call the slabs of concrete sculptures, or the overgrown vines a garden. Could be nicer. Homeless people do hang out on the benches during the day/night,...More

The environment is ok. But we were surprised that they would charge for additional bread. Since one basket for two people, it should be ok for four people to have another round. Further, the lobster dish contained a decent amount of lobsters, but it did...More

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate your request, the restaurant was sold and it is now an event venue catering to groups of 20 guests or more. We wish you a wonderful holiday season!
