We remembered David’s 388 being good. This was great. The Brussel sprouts were amazing. The Petite Filet in Madeira cream sauce was fantastic. We have paid much more for lower quality. If you want quantity go elsewhere. If you’re a foodie who wants great food...More

This used to be one of favorite places but not anymore. Escalating prices, smaller portions, less creative offerings, mediocre service. We won't be back until things change - just not worth it!
