I booked a reservation on OpenTable the day of our visit and checked that it was our anniversary. We were greeted by the hostess with a happy anniversary, and when we left with another happy anniversary. When she showed us to our table, there was a handwritten card wishing us happy anniversary, and heart-shaped confetti across the table. Granted, this was a Monday at 4:00 pm so the crowd was slim. Alain (from France!) was the most attentive server. The ribeye was cooked perfectly to medium, the wedge salad was probably the best I’ve ever had ( the balsamic drizzle did it), Fleming’s potatoes (AKA au gratin) were rich and delicious, and the sautéed mushrooms with whole garlic cloves were a great finishing touch. Alain brought us boxed truffles to take home. What a great meal and experience!

 The beef fillet was excellent, as well as the sweet potatoes and asparagus and collard greens. I would not recommend the pork chop as it was kind of plain. we were disappointed that they had a problem with their licensing and couldn’t serve any alcohol except for wine. Also, we really wanted the lamb as a starter, but they were out of lamb.
