Met friends there for happy hour/dinner before the theater. Happy hour prices make a early dinner more affordable. Food is well done, nicely presented, great waitstaff. No issue with multiple checks, but being there in December means it is less crowded than in the summer.

I enjoyed the Happy Hour Cheese Board along with a tasty selection of beer in the bar area. For dinner I had an amazing Lamb Shank with vegetables. All was wonderful and nicely priced.

the restaurant was recommended highly by the hotel unfortunately for us it was a disappointment we just arrived from a cruise, and fish we ordered was nothing special and very expensive. In my opinion look for another option, if you like seafood
