Went there with a group of thirteen and had a wonderful experience with a set menu offering different options for the three course meal. Everybody was happy with their choices and the accompanying wine. Friendly and attentive service. Always again.

Had dinner there again after a year. The food as well as the service received was outstanding. All meals were flavorsome and did not need additional seasoning. Presentation also excellent. I can highly recommend this place.
