Paige, our server, was friendly, courteous and attentive. We chose the cheese fondue and then to a dark chocolate dessert fondue. We complimented our food with a glass of spaehtlese wine. Great service, excellent food! A great place for a friends gathering or intimate twosome.

Loved the touches he made and the pace he kept! Usually the servers rush in the next course while you are still eating the last bites of the current one but not this time! Food was superlative as usual, and they still have the best bartenders in town!

Started with the California salad, moved on to Spinach/Artichoke for the cheese course and then to the Pacific Rim for my main course in Coq Au Vin. Our waitress Bree (but sure how she spells get name) was very attentive and came by often to see how we were doing and if we needed anything.

Little do they know, him and I were actually going through it and they made our experience memorable. They took our picture and put it in a picture frame, gave us some balloons, some chocolate to take home and melt and also gave us some free drinks! On top of that, the food was delicious! Will definitely be going back

We never received the picture or frame and unfortunately we didn’t receive the champagne toast either. Server, Jamal, was excellent. Food was good too.

We went here for Valentine’s Day and the bill was close to $250 for the two of us. The value of the food just isn’t there to eat chicken, little tiny sirloins and have to cook it yourselves. For that price, I expect way more.

There was so much steam from the table, that the humidity was built up to the point that the tile floors in the bathroom where VERY slippery. May I advise having a few dehumidifiers in the building or better ventilation to illuminate the issue.

While I understand it is beneficial for the prep staff,A flat $190 a couple with limited choices is frustrating. Service was good. Food was good and plentiful. Also,( And this not the restaurants fault,) but parents, this is NOT the place to bring your 4 unruley under 10 year olds and not control them. Laughing and screaming while playing "Rock paper scissors" with them is not appropriate. Does not add to a relaxing and/or romantic evening for anyone.

The servers are excellent in proving you with all the details needed for your meal to be a success. Tho the price is a little high, the quality and romance packages offered, plus the way your requests are granted makes those prices well deserved. Please visit, for I certainly will in the future.

It is a whole experience, when you go here, expect a non traditional dining experience because you get to pick and choose what you do here. Although expensive, I do enjoy the appeal of this place and is definitely one of my top special occasion restaurants.
