Me and my girlfriend have been coming here on our anniversary for the last five years. It's always a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is great and the food is even better. I look forward to coming here every year. I have yet to be disappointed P.S. Get the Caesar salad. It's the best salad you'll ever eat.

Nice place. Romantic and cozy, with a pianist and beautiful green marble carved bar. We made reservations, but probably wasn't necessary, because there were a few open seats. It was a busy and lively place, when we were there on a Saturday night. The staff were attentive and friendly. The restaurant offers wine by the flight with two tiers of quality: one for $19 and the other for about $26. They also have food specials. My wife ordered pasta with truffles and I had the halibut special. The pasta didn't have a strong truffle taste although you could see the truffles on the pasta. The halibut was beautifully prepared and presented. It was slightly dry, which may be from over cooking, but it was still enjoyable. We ordered a chocolate desert, which was really good and creme brulee, which was average. There are 7 beers on tap with a mix of styles. They have an immense wine menu with hundreds of bottles. Also, they have a coat check as you enter and restrooms available. Overall we had a great time.

Great experience! A group of us went to the mystery murder theatre. The actors were the wait staff and were in character the while time. Food was good and the show was fun. The format was good too! If you got their early enough you got a small piece of toasted bread with toppings. I would definitely recommend it especially if you are looking for something new to do
