    I think this is the best restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. Absolutely incredible food. We got the Prime New York strip, and Trout Almondine, and Shrimp Pepper Pot for a starter. Every bite was flavored to perfection. The waitress was very good, atmosphere was very relaxed and quiet, and parking was easy. We will be returning.

    Nice ambiance and attentive service. We had bone marrow, chicken liver mousse, and tuna stack for appetizers and prime rib for dinner. The food was very tasty and portions of good size. We did not get any side dishes as we did not want to pay $15 for a baked potato or $17 for mack & cheese - this seems excessive. I suggest folks order wine with dinner as cocktails were not good even though they charge $20. Good experience overall, but prices for salads, side dishes, and cocktails are unreasonable.
