There was a ridiculous variety of delicious hot and cold food and the setting was beautiful. No reservations and casual attire.

From the wine to our meals and desert, everything was wonderful. Having a table at the window overlooking the garden is always nice as well. Our server, John was efficient and gracious. Yes, the price is steep, but we've never been disappointed.
