We went there to celebrate my Birthday. The meal was excellent as well as the service. The Waiters served my desert with Birthday greetings written with colored syrups and a small Birthday candle lit by the waiter. I loved the background jazz music. Overall a great experience and we will be going back again for my wife’s birthday.

Service was excellent. The timing of courses was leisurely per our request. The tenderloin was tasty but had to be sent back. We asked for medium. It came out very rare. The server was very solicitous. She returned the meal to the kitchen and returned a short time later with a very satisfactory order.
