I went there to celebrate our anniversary and the place was just perfect and food was excellent. I even planned my office outing right after a week of celebration and everybody just the place. Special thanks to Williams to make everything extra special.

Service let the night down. Food was usual high standard ambiance great but very slow service. It was busy but we has booked for 10 and a hotel like this should be prepared. I will return as it's a great place. Hopefully next time service will be better.
