We started with smoked calamari and a mushroom dish, both were heavenly. My husband had the lobster, I had the salmon and my son had the hanger steak, all fantastic. The desserts were delicious to top it off. A wonderful evening with great ambiance!

First, the food is excellent...nothing too weird, good basics of steak, scallops, fish, pasta. It's the sauces and spices that turn these dishes into AMAZING meals. Even the butter they serve with their bread has its own delectable twist. Drinks are great. The atmosphere really...More
