Thank you for stopping by. We're terribly sorry that the listing was wrong (it has been fixed now thank you), but very happy that you came regardless! We would be delighted if you came back for dinner and tried our Lobster with Fettuccine

This was going to be our special night out for fine dining for anniversary dinner. It was beyond disappointing. The service was snooty--which would have been fine if the food lived up to that attitude, but no. First it is worth noting that we paid...More

High prices, okay value. Would not recommend this place, unless you are not value conscious. Service however, was terrific!
