I had several excellent dinners there - the steak was cooked "blue" the way I like it. Friendly & efficient service.

Went here to taste the food after hearing a lot of people say it had lobster, ended up having a under cooked steak, and a lobster that was rubbery and didn't taste fresh.

The food and service was outstanding in every way. We had lots of extras from a passionate chef who would grace any of the finest restaurants in the world. I bet Rick Stein would dine here twice a week
