We enjoyed our "Date Night" immensely. This was our first visit to the restaurant. There were 3 choices of breads and each one was delicious. We loved the poach pear salad followed by the lamb which was cooked to perfection and very tender. We asked to bring home the chocolate cake which was very rich and decadent. Our waitress, Beth, was terrific. She made our dinner so enjoyable. Hope to be back next week! More

Our lunch was very nice. It was pretty quiet until the seated a group of young ladies in the booth behind us that reeked of marijuana. Obviously not the restaurants fault. But the smell was strong and they were a bit loud. I think our fish could have been cooked a couple minutes longer. But other than those 2 things a decent experience. More
