Attended a large reunion party. Food just average. Service a little slow due to size of party. Cocktails a little expensive. Previous visit for dinner was very good,

My husband and I go to the Basque Cultural Center at least 4 times a year - always a wonderful experience. They have delicious food from Soup, Salad to Main entrée. A nice homey atmosphere that I really like. Can't go wrong going to Basque.
