Everyone’s says to get the squash ravioli but we didn’t. The ció pino lacked salt and wine. The seafood pasta also lacked flavor. The halibut special was fresh but bland. Our server was excellent. Very pricey for what is offered.

I'm not sure. I think the best thing to do is to call them and ask about their usual holiday hours. I'm sure they do the same thing year after year- so that is something they'd know the answer to
