This place had been open for a few years before we finally tried it. It is delicious and well prepared. The bill was a little pricey, but we left satisfied and happy.

Four friends, four delicious entrees, two great desserts and a couple of good bottles of wine. Great patio and perfect weather it all makes up for a wonderful evening.
