This is an upscale restaurant. The ambiance is very nice and the food is nicely presented and very good. The service was good, we enjoyed the downtown location for some shopping after dinner. Highly recommend!

We went on a busy Friday night to celebrate a health victory. It satisfied our expectations in every way. The food is as good, or better, than anything you would find on a expensive cruise ship. A very good all-around experience.
