We went with the restaurant week special and had such a wonderful time. The food was great, I especially loved the addition of the dessert course to this year’s special. I also LOVED the wine flight option. It was fun to get a new wine with each course. I loved our server and truly wish I could remember her name, I’m so sorry! She was perfect though!

It was just a really great time, couldn’t be happier that we went!

Well the food was amazing, the presentation was extraordinary and the quality matched as well. How ever I wanted to order my beautiful date a nice glass of red, the manager came over very awkwardly afterwards and was insinuating that I was drunk I wasn’t even drunk just very tired after working 12 hours. I do understand why they didn’t want to serve me. The music matched the vibe and the steak was amazing and the chocolate was to. However I did notice the sauces/fondue did easily slide off of the food. But my experience was great! Definitely would go back just not as high.

Overall the experience was excellent. However the filet mignon and teriyaki sirloin were very tough even when cooked on the lower end of time. All else was delicious. Restaurant week 2020

First time visiting! For Restaurant Week you got a cheese fondue with breads and vegetables, a salad, a smorgasbord of chicken, shrimp, salmon, steaks to cook either by fondue pot or grilling yourself at the table and THEN a choice of chocolate fondue with fruit and sweets. All for 45.20. It was AMAZING. Still pretty pricey and the cocktails were a bit too sweet but it was all very delicious. Definitely an odd dining experience but the dessert was my favorite part. 100% recommend.

Overall, a great experience. However, they were out of filet mignon which was disappointing. Service was great. We added Grand Marnier to our chocolate fondue which was great. It used to be on the menu and although still available on request - highly recommend adding those options back to the menu as they make the dessert even better.

We went during Restaurant Week and got the special. It was interesting, a good option for a date night. A bit gimmicky. Portions were a little bit skimpy except for the salad.
