Food
The food is sensational — it reminds us a little of Gary Danko in San Francisco. Guests have a choice of "three, four, or five-course menu selections, in addition to the “Chef’s Menu.”

During a recent visit for dinner,
we each selected the "three-course" menu. Although portions are on the small side, this was more than enough food. Note that prices are the same whether you choose a salad, vegetable or entree.
