    Excellently done as usual. However, the bartender did not have much faith in the House brand champagne pushing us to a more expensive option.

    It was absolutely delicious! However, the table for five was too large as we were too stretched out to speak to each other especially as the volume of noise in the room was extremely loud. The table could have accommodated 8. So, this did take the shine off my significant birthday celebration.
