Great place to eat and drink especially on Tuesdays when martinis are $5. They have great early bird entrees daily. Food is very good, fine enough for Obama before his term ended. After food, drinks and tips average cost will be about $50 per person...More

This was a great place to go for our anniversary dinner. It has a great atmosphere (looks like a lit courtyard with a large tree), and the staff was wonderful. We started with the fried brussell sprouts, which were just to our liking. Then we...More
