My wife dined on a Friday night and I got the prime rib, which was outstanding. My wife got the scallops, which were excellent but the portion was rather stingy and the accompanying corn something was not good. Good service and great atmosphere.

This former firehouse building stands out from other building. You can choose between the main bar (dark but very well decorated), the garden, or a patio. You can get many different food style (amrican, mexican,etc.). This is ideal for a brunch. Service is great
