We had a lovely meal for four and enjoyed being able to hear each other! Salads were good. Mixed seafood grill was very tasty and quite generous portions! Stuffed sole was also good. And the chocolate mousse cake was delicious.

We enjoy stopping by the bar. The bartenders remind me of years ago where they look and act very professionally. Excellent Manhattans. The food is top notch and my family and I really enjoy our meals.

Excellent service and food. Try filet and lobster tail before 7 pm in bar. Can be a bit crowded, but worth the wait.
