    As always great food and great service. As the restaurant got more crowded, the noise level got so high that it was difficult to hold a conversation. My only complaint.

    Returned here for our anniversary after many years, and it did not disappoint. Outstanding experience all the way from the valet parking, to the piano player and decor, to attentive service and gourmet food. And for all that the bill was surprisingly modest - avg $125/pp including tip. If you want a great meal, in a classy place, go here!

    Dinning experience was wonderful. Starting from the valet, host and matre d was very courteous attentive and made our 12 anniversary very special. The drink menu was very comprehensive with a variety of options to choose. The decor and ambience was very luxurious. The food was plated beautifully, delicious and portions were right sized per person. Me and my husband loved all the appetizers, seafood entree and dessert cannoli . The staff was very attentive, kept refilling water, replacing new flatware, dinner ware for each course. They made us extra special with the anniversary greeting with dessert. This is my favorite dinning experience and will return for our special family celebration
