We love going to the Chef's Table and sitting outside in their courtyard. We have never had a disappointing lunch. It's the place we take our guests who visit us to have lunch. They all have loved it.

We visited this restaurant with eight couples. It was a little crowded but work well for our group. The menu had many good options and there were several different entrees ordered. Everyone was very pleased ‘with the food and the presentations
