I took my husband here for his birthday, the service was great and the food was awesome too. I particularly liked the petite entrees so that we could try desserts and appetizers too. Pictured is the tiramisu and dessert melon prosciutto appitizer.

Attended a private party in their private dining room. Service was extremely attentive. Never had to ask for anything. Had the filet mignon. Excellent! Clam chowder was also very good.
