The lobster bisque I tried many years ago was very very salty, already taking into consideration that European soups are more salty than Chinese pallete. Other course we ordered were so-so, not one was impressive or outstanding. Not worth the relatively higher than average price....More

This is our special restaurant for what ever we are celebrating. They will make the ceasar salad at your table and CHATEAUBRIAND FOR TWO as well. We have stopped eating meat but we always have the CHATEAUBRIAND as a treat. Love the place.

I don't recall what we paid for coffee or wine. It's fine dining, expect it to be on the high end. I do recall how delicious they both are! They do not post the prices of these on their website.
