This restaurant has delicious food. The prices are high. We expected for these prices better service. The hostess staff was not friendly. The waitress was fine but could have provided better service.

The atmosphere is inviting, everything on the menu looks delicious and everyone enjoyed their food. I can personally speak for the great steak as well as good bar drinks. Service is very friendly and attentive. Would come back again.
