Had a business dinner for 15 and everything was perfect. Service and meal were incredible. Everyone said it was one of the best meals we’ve had at one of our meetings. Great job to management and staff.

I want to go back so I can try some of the amazing desserts they had on display. But the night I went I had wonderful short ribs and black bean soup. Very nice place and service was excellent.
