I had not been here for 20 years...tonight we gathered for a family special occasion. I really really hate to say that the food was fair at best...pasta sauce very salty, and menu structure/pricing was misleading...I don't need to go back..ever.

You cannot go wrong with any cut of beef, but the fillet is always savory. Service is very proper and the ambiance has a nice muted, calming sense to it.

Yes, that is fine. We saw a wide range of dress when there, from super dressed up to super casual (probably too much so). Dressy jeans/nice top was how I was dressed and I was comfortable.
