I had the tuna special which was thinly sliced and tasteless. My wife had a smaller piece of salmon that rested on a way too big portion of whipped potatoes. The other couple enjoyed their meals slightly more than we did. Service was good.

The food was cooked to perfection! I had seared scallops and pork belly and its was so full of flavor. They go above and beyond to make their customers happy. Service was GREAT this was my first time there and I will be back.

Delicious food beautifully presented. The thing I like most is they offer smaller portions (which are less expensive) Sometime when I eat out I am too full after having a drink, appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. But this small portion is perfect.
