This was our first time dining here, but as I've heard from others over decades, the cheese course and dessert course are the best. They would have been even better with more fresh veggies and fruits, and less starchy pretzel bread and sweets to dip, but that's just personal preference. My salad course was "meh," and the lettuce had started to brown at the edges, but my girlfriend (who got a different salad) really liked hers. The entree course was just okay, and a bit chaotic with four people dipping in one pot. An extra $20 seems like a high upcharge for two people to share one small lobster tail. Service was helpful and friendly, if a bit slow, but I understand that this isn't a restaurant to dine at if you're in a hurry. Might come here again...if someone else is paying the bill. Or just for a dessert course after dinner at another restaurant.

Food was excellent! We enjoyed the duck the most! Servers were stretched a bit thin so a manager had to take care of us most of the time but it was nice the manager did help instead of letting us sit and wait.

My husband & I were first timers & wanted to experience a new/different dinner for his bday.
Ordered the 4 course meal for 2, food was average however, hubby enjoyed his meal. Didn’t care for the salads and we both were surprised by the small portions of food received. I had to eat my vegan meal half cooked because food broke apart and was stuck to the grill. We may return for the desserts, not a full course meal.

My husband and I had a great time there for dinner on 22 of this month. The food and service was great and worth the price. The waiter that we had was great. We would recommend going there for special occasion.

Age has not been kind to the facility and experience. Although I am sympathetic to what COVID has done to service industries, and am generally patient with those struggles, the low quality and sloth-like speed of the service poor even by 2021 standards. This is especially problematic in a restaurant that is not merely supposed to provide food, but an experience. It will be a while before we try again. Need a complete overhaul. Still, the food is pretty good.

Was our 5 year wedding anniversary. Only thing I did not like we were seated by bathroom. Literally could look straight into the bathroom because people did not close the door. Asked to be moved said they could not move us.
