This was a special occasion birthday dinner. Food was outstanding and plentiful and service attentive. Lewnes has an extensive wine list but avoid wine by the glass as the fills are stingy at best. Filet was cooked to perfection. Pricey but very good!More

There is street parking only available. I'm not sure if there are designated handicap spots or not. You may want to contact the restaurant for assistance.

I didn't take notice to be honest as we went to just have steak. I'm sure they have non meat items on the menu. I would not recommend their sides though as they were greasy and over cooked.
