Not much to say here...except the meal, the service and 'entertainment', and the wine were all fabulous! We would dine again in a heart beat! Worth every penny and more :)

Dennis is a most wonderful host, chef, and communicator. One dish was better than the other and we enjoyed every minute. The time went by so quickly and while we were full at the end we weren’t super uncomfortable. It is something I strongly recommend...More
