The atmosphere and food were perfect! Very attentive staff with a delicious Creme Brûlée dessert! And a wonderful surprise when we had a chat with Chef Wolfgang himself!

Great service, great wine list, but entrees were just ok. My filet was good, my wife’s snapper was just ok. For the price and the reputation I think they could have done better. The wedge salad however was great. Probably won’t go back.

We had reservations for the more formal dining room but liked the bistro area and menu that we stayed there. We sampled many items on the menu and everything was delicious--including the drinks. Service was nice and the atmosphere cozy.
