We had a lovely , good old fashioned meal here. The wide menu will satisfy the fussiest of eaters. Service is polished and friendly. The chocolate mousse is a winner.

Corporate dinner experience, excellent ambience, great wine selection, however was disappointed at the vegetarian options-the chef really needs to be more creative for his clients. We also found that the service was too intrusive. Excellent parking, and great location, thanks.
