We visited for a big family dinner and it was just glorious. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. This restaurant is a fair distance to travel, and it is not cheap, but it is worth it. We’ll be back.

I doubt it because the Restaurant has a full bar which includes cocktails. In that scenario, unlikely, they'd allow BYO.
