I took my husband here for his birthday, the service was great and the food was awesome too. I particularly liked the petite entrees so that we could try desserts and appetizers too. Pictured is the tiramisu and dessert melon prosciutto appitizer.

Attended a private party in their private dining room. Service was extremely attentive. Never had to ask for anything. Had the filet mignon. Excellent! Clam chowder was also very good.

Back here after ages.. and happy to find the best parts haven't changed... the large room is still light and bright and radiates positive energy. Almost every table was occupied - this is a very popular venue for quick business lunches. We were seated at...More
