This restaurant closed a few months ago. We only had bad experiences here with food and hostess service.

Horrible food. The filet mignon was first well done when I asked for medium then I got a fatty grizzly piece of crap. The rest of the meal was below average. Can't believe they can stay in business in Princeton. Will never go back again.

This BYO bottle establishment is venerable, but has seen better days. It could use a makeover - both menu and ambiance wise. It still has sentimental value for many; neverthless, there are better places to choose in Princeton.
