User Reviews

Excellent Restaurant  

My date and I had a fabulous dinner last evening. The Caesar Salad is outstanding, prepared at your table, with any special requests. It was the best I've ever tasted. The Lobster Ravioli was equally outstanding. The fresh Salmon was prepared with jumbo scallops and a creamy vermouth sauce, also superb. The Tira Misu was to die for. The entire experience was great!

Always good  

Nice atmosphere, good food, good value for the price, consistent quality. We come here often, never been disappointed
