"This was a great way for me to spend some special alone time with my fiancé. The atmosphere was superb, the food and drinks were fantastic, but most importantly the crew was so warm and personable, it really made the night!  Wonderful service and beautiful surroundings, what more can you ask for?" – Jen and Charles
