We were a party of 6. All were happy with our dinners. Food and service were excellent. Our server , I believe Laurie, was pleasant and friendly as well as efficient.

I really like this restaurant for a nice, quiet meal with my husband, I ordered an espresso martini and my husband ordered a dirty vodka martini. They were great! They even had the blue cheese stuffed olives. For dinner, I had the French onion soup and escargot with puff pastry. The escargot was prepared differently than the traditional but was wonderful. My husband ordered the pork schnitzel and it was delicious as well. The waitress was friendly and attentive and the food came out quickly (even though it was a busy Friday night). We are locals and we will definitely be back!
