Looking for truly fine dining with a fireplace? This place is it. The service is impeccable as is the food. Everything on the menu is delicious.

Dear Jed, Thank you so very much for kind words, as we are so happy you enjoyed your experience. I will look at our cost centers for future pricing; what items did you feel were too pricy? This would help us improve, moving forward.

It is a high quality restaurant with top quality wait staff. It is not cheap and more of a special occasion place. But well worth it for big life events.
