Been going here for 15 years. Great food, hard to get a table, excellent service. Go a little early for the limited quantity Prime Rib. But everything on menu is good. Cozy bar area, live music. But Remember to book table!

Hello - Here's what I read on their menu. Don't know proportions of each ingredient, but your cooking sense will take over and guide you. The dressing is probably critical to the overall taste, but I don't know the... More

Your conditions don't work for an open-plan restaurant. One of the large hotels would be more suitable for you.
