My husband and I went for a dinner there two weeks ago. We had a great appetizer (crab cakes), quite good fish and dessert. Their cocktails were tops. The dining room was charming and the service was impeccable.

This place is unreal. It's perfect, it's delicious - it's expensive, so we save it for VERY SPECIAL occasions - but that's what this place is, very special! Everything tastes amazing always & staff is lovely.

Rooneys is our restaurant of choice for anniversaries. It's very quiet and romantic, the food is very good and the service impeccable! They have a French chef who comes every year for a week and makes delicious specialties!
