Myself and my coworkers were on a business trip and chose this restaurant from other reviews. It was the best choice. We all chose the prefix menu. The filet was cooked to perfection. Great service. Highly recommend!

I had a business meeting at this place recently. The food was great, and the service was terrific. The only problem was the wait for dessert. Steaks were on the menu, but I chose the salmon. Good choice. Loved the Ceasar Salad too.

The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy a quiet table or host a large party.
