Beautiful facility. Great big room with plenty of old world charm. Parking was easy and the food was great. Fun spot right in the heart of town.

So why would I give this place an average rating when the main course was amazing. Well we were here for a wedding. The butler passed appetizers were sparse. They did start coming around a bit more right before the main course seating. Maybe they...More

An awesome venue if price is no object. The drinks, wait staff and meals were outstanding. For the larger group they had food stations. They provided enough variety and every dish was superior in flavor.
