Outdoor seating was comfortable, warm on a cold night and romantic.

Select menu was limited and even if maxed out would only amount to $34/person as opposed to stated $45/person value.

The service was very good. Our server was attentive and we didn't feel rushed.

The food was good. The portions were good. The service was timely.

It was very cold inside restaurant. Had to ask waitress to close doors more than once. Wore jackets all time. Did not have decaf coffee or decaf tea nor did they offer to make any. The waitress coughed non stop when not in the eating areas. As she was the only female we knew it was her. She obviously had a cold, the flu or allergies and should not have been serving food. No matter how many times I add up the food only menu item prices I cannot come to a $90 value. The $45 was not the issue. But to be sold a 50% off service valued at $90 I don't get it. The menu was over priced.
