Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two diners had a wonderful lunch yesterday. My daughter had the calf's liver, which was tender, moist and flavorful with a delicious sauce. I requested an AHI TUNA entree with mashed potatoes and sauted spinich. The tuna was on the menu as a sandwich, but I asked our server if the Chef would prepare the tuna as an entree. The Chef obliged and I was thrilled with the result. A perfect presentation of AHI TUNA - medium rare of course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My choice of Chicken and Shrimp Pasta was excellent. The chicken and shrimp were tender with a light sauce with onions and spinach. This was preceded by a cup of French Onion soup with just enough cheese on top to make it tasty. The meal ended with a chocolate mousse that was creamy and filled with blueberries and strawberries. I was pleasantly full but not uncomfortable. The soup, entrée, and dessert portions were just enough to fill you up but not feel like you were bloated. I would certainly return to enjoy, what I know, will be another reat meal.
