    The prime rib was excellent, perfectly cooked, tender and flavorful, enjoyed with a side of delicious sautéed spinach. The strawberry salad to start was good though the vinaigrette was a bit more tart than we prefer. I had a very good glass of Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon to accompany the meal. Our server, Paul, was outstanding, offering very helpful advice and being congenial and attentive. I didn’t like the table much (felt “on display” in the middle of the room while others were in booths), however we didn’t ask for a different one when seated, so that’s on us. We both thought it was an excellent meal.

    Our experience was wonderful. The food was fantastic and the service matched. Ryan was attentive and made my son feel like he was part of the crew with mocktails. Also thank you for having the game on. My son was able to venture over and watch it while the adults had a conversation. Again making this a wonderful experience for us all!
