Everything was perfect for our daughter's 21st birthday celebration - thank you. Two of us had the vegan set menu and the other 6 had the main set menu and it was all delicious, as well as good value. The staff were very welcoming and made sure it felt like a special celebration. I'd recommend it to all.
