We loved the painting of the periodic table on the wall on one side and the wine cellar and garden display on the other in your private room for our mom’s 90th birthday. I would just remember to have the cellar door closed to keep the warm air in and appreciate bringing in two space heaters! The food, wine and cake were delicious. Thank -you. MoreOpenTable Diner -
