Great way to relax and dine before attending a performance. Atmosphere is calm, menu offered a nice selection of lighter fare as well as full meals. We were told this menu changes twice during the season. Our meals were very good with “dainty” portions. The service was excellent. Attentive, helpful, well informed about what they are serving. Kudos. Drinks and wine list was adequate for this venue. Dessert offerings were unique and quite tempting. Overall, a pleasant experience, no regrets. Will most likely return prior to the next performance we attend. More
