We had a wonderful dinner here. The service was very attentive. The table side Caesars salad was very good and fun to watch them prepare.

Went there Tuesday evening and had the Steak Diane which was very delicious and as tender and juicy as could be. Service was exemplary and the Cherries Jubilee were the best.

This is an elegant place to dine. The service has improved a bit since our visits in the past, and we enjoyed our meal. Food is nice. We had the seafood stuffed chicken and the shrimp, which was tasty, but the mashed potato side tasted like instant potatoes.

My wife had a Filet and I had the Filet and shrimp, they were both excellent. The portion sizes were perfect but unfortunately we didn't have room for desert. Reservations are required. We had to make them two days in advance. Very friendly staff.

We had to make reservations four days in advance. We have eaten here before and wanted to make sure we were able to eat here again. The service, food and decor was excellent. The food was fantastic and reasonable priced considering were you are. This is a fancy upscale restaurant. They make Caesar salad right at your table in front... More
