Using the Travelzoo voucher, we felt like second class diners. They give you a special menu to order from which has only 3 entree choices. We tried the steak and chicken options and both were lousy. I'm sure the standard menu has some more appealing options. Will not be dining here again, at least not with a Travelzoo promotion.

The ambience was appealing, but our food was not.

Ambiance, waiter, food was all excellent. Wonderful quiet romantic evening

The per-selected coupon dinner menu was separate from the usual menu, but the food selections were mouth watering.
