We had a party of about 25. The food was excellent but what impressed me the most was the service. These folks are on top of it! Multiple rooms mean you can have a private meeting or intimate dinner.

You don't want to see the menu. It sounds better then how it tastes. A very overpriced for the quality of the food restaurant.
