    Food was great (perfect steak), service was exceptional. It was a busy Saturday night so the place was a bit noisy, but bearable.

    Our waiter was attentive, respectful and responsive. Lovely food. Maybe some green veg and salad included with steak meals would improve overall satisfaction and value.

    Recommend the veal snitz and burger… will try the duck curry next time. Service outstanding, great fireplace. I love how they have not put floor boards down and have carpet…. It would be too noisey if floorboards were in the dining room. Will be back
