Nice quiet place. Plenty of parking in the back. Service was excellent. Presentation of the food was tasteful. Good value. The only drawback was that the meals could have been warmer for both of us.

We had reservations. We were seated with our water almost immediately. Within 15 minutes we had a glass of wine and our orders had been taken. Nothing extra just 1 soup of the day and 1 French onion soup. Took maybe another 15 minutes for that to come. Then we waited for our main meal. Again nothing extra. 1 salmon... More
