I was so looking forward to dinner there last night.. had done my I thought..I was so disappointed.. It was so bright in there.. a guy in a hawaiin shirt and jeans.. I was dressed up.. what happened to the reqd coat? There was ceiling leak with a table with bus tubs in the middle. the salad is ice berg coated in blue chees. While the dinner was ok I would never even think of going back..It makes me nervous now reading these suggestions!! I read GO!!! and fabulous etc.. Someone loved the fried zuchinni. hey it was thin sliced fried zuchinni.. no big deal..NOT that iIwas expecting a food heaven at all. I thought it would be more romantic and candlight.. i seriously think it was brightrer than Dennys..We should have walked out..actually I didnt think the staff was all that pleasant either,considering we did have a reservation and there are so few people in there... oh well bummer. It was my husbands bday dinner...Im off to make short ribs with gorgonzola polenta to make up for my choice!!!
