The grounds are worth a walk whether the memorabilia with Vivien Leigh or the Kennedy's or the herb gardens. The menu offerings are excellent. I chose the scallops for luncheon. We ate on the patio and the garden views are stunning.

The food and service was excellent. The Steak Diane and halibut were fantastic. We had the abalone as an appetizer and would definitely have it again. Honestly, if we lived near this community, we would not hesitate to make this place our favorite dining place.
