Our dinner here was as close to a perfect meal as I have had in a while—plus, the service and setting are impeccable. The only problem was choosing what to order. This is a hidden gem well worth discovering.

Good service and one of the best steaks I have ever had. We had a reservation, was seated and waited on promptly. It is a little pricey, but was definitely not disappointed in the food.
