I hosted a evening business dinner. They were great from booking the room, selecting the menu and everything in between. All of my associates lived their meal and the service was first class.

This is probably the top five fancy restaurant in gainesville. The food is generate, and everything you would except from a steak house. The service was good and probably the best you will get in this town. The parking sucks.
