Becky , our waitress is amazing. Friendly, quick and funny The food is very tasty. We loved the shareable appetizer. The beef ribs is so tender. Filet M is wonderful. The portions are big so we had no room for deserts.

We do have a wheelchair ramp and a few tables we assign that are wheelchair accessible. However, our washrooms are several flights of stairs down into the office building which we are a part of.
