Went in a party of ten. Everyone enjoyed their meal accompanied by good cocktails and service. Martinis were especially good. Service was excellent.

We are snowbirds and have eaten at this restaurant a number of times. Food is consistently good as is the service. Prices are more reasonable than other similar restaurants in the area (e.g. Wally's Desert Turtle) and the food is comparable.

This restaurant used to be kinda funky and cool, but now it's gone (très) upscale and pricey, appealing to a (much) older class of people. The food, however, is still delicious.

You would need to contact the restaurant. It is a smaller restaurant so I am not sure if they have a private room to reserve. Great food, friendly staff! Hope it works out for you.
