The ambiance.

There was no realized cost savings with this Travelzoo. The dinner exceeded the value of the Travelzoo by $30+ dollars and once you include the tip the total was near $138.00. I was disappointed by the value and secondly, the food was not good. My spouse ordered a shrimp dish, but was startled that the shrimp was presented in its full shell with the head of the shrimp. Overall, the experience was not great and I will not be returning.

Our waiter was great. Very knowledgeable about the menu and made excellent recommendations. He was attentive but we did not feel rushed. We will definitely come back. Thanks for a great night!
