Outstanding Service & Outstanding Food
The food is also absolutely amazing. So fresh and expertly prepared. All of our guests raved that this was the best wedding meal they've ever had. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves, and felt very safe the entire time. There's also a great outdoor patio space available as well that would be great for large groups. We barely needed to bring-in any decorations because the space is so beautiful!
