Took a friend of mine to lunch for his birthday. The atmosphere and service were amazing, but the food was spectacular. In addition to the regular menu, guests were offered extras (at a cost) but they were well worth it. I would recommend this to anyone who is on the fence due to cost, and it is definitely an experience worth having. More
