So to be completely honest. I can cook some good food at home and that does skew my opinion when we go out. The service was fine and the atmosphere is nice. However, do not waste you hard earned money. We got the special of the night which was filet with potatoes and Swiss chard. I should have taken a photo of the meal and posted it asking people if they would pay 42.00 for this meal! It was actually hilarious how terribly constructed this meal was the potato things were rolling around the plate I this sauce. The piece of meat was smaller than an in and out hamburger and about as thin. Very disappointing and extremely over priced.
I got the salmon special with riosotto and baby veggies. I am pretty sure I got 1minute white rice with sauce and 2 invisible carrots and tiny baby radishes. Such a joke. The best part of the night was their French fries.
I would be embarrassed to send those dishes out. Very sad and poor effort.
