Each year around my birthday (April), Rooney's chef goes to France for a week or so, and a French chef comes here. The food is always authentic, but this year they outdid themselves. Four of us shared mussels meunière and smoked salmon appetizers. I had...More

We have eaten here three times and it is always a treat. Everything is perfectly prepared and the atmosphere reminds you of days gone by. This time Rooney’s had a visiting chef from Lyon and the food was marvelous.
