First time visit after friend's recommendation. Had the couples special for two. Everything delish and large. Stuffed mushrooms were my favorite. Dessert chocolate topped off the night. Super waitress. Ask for Natalie's table.

Not worth the price. Went with a few friends for a date night. If I go back it will just be for dessert.
