Everyone in our group got something different (duck, tenderloin and sea bass) and each selection was outstanding as were the appetizer (figs and cheese with walnuts) and desserts (in particular the key lime and pomegranate panna cotta). Excellent and knowledgeable staff (including wine pairings). Not...More
