We had a lovely meal in the Livingstone Room with the piano going in the background in this grand old room, it was beautiful. The food was excellent and they had a decent wine list.

My wife and I didn't go cheap, we did the full course meal along with some very fine wine. All together, including probably a 20% tip, we paid $295 USD in total. It was well worth it. (circa June 2016)
