I received exceptional service by my waitress. She constantly checked on me during my meal to see if I needed anything and offered a complimentary dessert when the Chef gave me the wrong size fish serving. Outside the food being delicious, my waitress was very genuine, receptive and smiled the whole time during her service to me. It made for a pleasant evening. More
