I was a bit disappointed. I ordered prime rib and it was not very tender and full of fat. The service was good and the salad was good.

I took a few of my team here for a celebratory lunch. Their lasagna is to die for and I always have left overs to eat the next day. We were there for almost 2 hours and they never made us feel rushed.
