Celebrating being cancer free after mastectomy recovery, my daughter and I planned a special night out and made reservations requesting a nice table for two. We were put next to the hot kitchen and only saw our waitress twice. In hopes that the food would...More

I have eaten here several times and always had a wonderful meal in a lovely atmosphere. However, there was a band playing much too loudly at our last visit, which made the evening most unpleasant. I will make sure there isn't a band scheduled before...More

This restaurant was recommended by business associates so I felt confident to try it out. I ordered the Seafood Scampi comprised of various shellfish in pasta. The lobster tail had an unusual consistency and did not remotely resemble the taste of lobster. Disappointing to say...More
