Dinner was phenomenal. My only comment would be that I think the beef tartare was better with the homemade potato chips, like I had last year.
Kudos to everyone who prepared the food.

Even the support staff were helpful and were on top of every little detail.

Food was very good but the music was blaring very loudly, people were shouting to be heard over the music. Not a place to go if you want to enjoy a conversation. Not good for a date.

Lovely as always. I do wish the waitress had informed us that the Caesar salad would be made with iceberg lettuce. We probably wouldn’t have ordered it. Not very tasty.

Responded on December 1, 2019

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to publish your feedback. You are correct our waitress should have informed you that we were serving the Caesar salad with iceberg. It was just a temporary situation, we have resumed using romaine.
