We enjoyed our meal here but it was not quite right. The service was sometimes attentive and other times absent. The starters were tasty but the main course steak was well-done rather than medium. Dessert was OK but ended up being too messy. The restaurant...More

The setting and food are quite something, very enjoyable as is the selection of wines. However, there are only a few waitrons and they don't really check up. Food was prepared relatively quickly and looked very good.

This restaurant is billed as fine dining. Its not, other the fine dining prices. Entrees $20-30, Mains $40-50. For that price you want something special. The food was decidedly ordinary. Service was VERY slow. After 1 hour from order I had to ask when would...More
