The food was amazing, the salmon tasted fresh and the drinks were on point. I ordered the chocolate creme brulee, which was a little too heavy, i wish i just ordered the regular one. Otherwise an overall delicious stop.

Made reservaions for Valentine's Day dinner and were not disappointed. It was the best meal of the entire trip. Duck and fish entrees both exellent. Imaginative desserts and coffee drinks. Nice atmosphere.

Very good food with a pretty good variety. Prices are a little top end but comparable for quality. Staff is very friendly and helpful with recommendations.

We will be open on Christmas Eve but not on Christmas Day and we only open at 4:30. We are hosting our 18th annual New Years Eve Party on the 31st and it is always a hugely good time. Hope to see you there. Frank, Owner
