If the weather is nice, definitely reserve a table outside, beautiful spot. Its a BYOB which really helps keep the tab down, but the food is simply fantastic, very good fresh fish dishes and the normal steak fare as well.

Was here recently after an Alumni get together. Priced very high for lunch. Althought the portions were large. The place is elegant with a nice fireplace and great atmosphere if you don't mind paying $12 for a sandwich.
