I've had exactly 3 dinners here in the past year and a half, all of which were great, but not excellent experiences. It's definitely something different from your typical chain restaurants. They set up a pretty decent atmosphere with a clean dining room, dim lighting,...More

Yes, they offer a room for private parties. I am not sure about the separate check for 12 people. You could call they and ask. You will not be disappointed in the food, it is delicious!!!
