Quite close to the PPR. Have the concierge call the restaurant to come pick you up. Really nice surf and turf options (actually a rather large menu) and a great dessert in a very lovely setting and good ambience. A special evening kind of place!

We ate here twice - lunch and dinner. We would go back again. It seemed their appetizers are more impressive than their entrees.
