Service and Ambiance were first rate. Also, the trio which was playing on a Saturday night was lovely.

The place is beautiful, the ambiance lovely, but the food was absolutely tasteless! I had French Onion Soup and it tasted like hot water with onions. My husband ordered the special of the day, Boeuf Bourgonionne, which should have been fall apart tender, and it was tough and chewy and tasted like someone poured a glass of wine over it. Four people, four meals, all pathetic.

Just the setting, near the fountain.

The filets were small and the large appetizer of four ravioli's was way over-priced. The Pavlova dessert was nothing to rave about and couldn't be as popular as the waiter claimed. Despite your voucher it still cost us $225 with my son's and his fiance's dinner plus $28 for parking. We've had much better meals although the setting was nice. Oh! The side dishes (3) that we ordered were pretty bad, a joke really. Ruth Chris is much better.

Atmosphere. Great food. Very personable staff.

Because host could not give us a booth, we had complimentary glass of champaign.
