This is a specilal place for us to go, it normally needs to be an "occasion". We started with an appetizer, might I recommend the Samurai Nachos. They were most excellent, and plenty for 2 to share. Husband got Pad Thai, which is one of his faves and I went in for the Turkey Dinner. Possibly the best turkey I have ever had. I would go back, for the same meal in a shot. It was that good. Thanks for being open on a day when most places are closed. We shall return!

We are the New York Islanders flight crew and we had brought in the crew on the day of thanksgiving. Everything had been closed, but this restaurant took our reservation of 8 and it was fantastic. The wine was very tasteful and the food was completely worth it. The service was great and everyone was extremely nice.

We decided to try something different for Thanksgiving this year so we decided on this restaurant. It was a very good decision. Everything was outstanding the salad bar is second to none and it had a lot of everything. The meats, there was an amazing selection. The only thing about the meat that we didn't like is it seemed to be more rare or medium and we weren't able to get medium well, but that was okay it was all still very very good. Great service great food great atmosphere. We will return

Loved everything about our dinner except I was unable to order a glass of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. You see it by the bottle ,but not by the gas. This wine is super popular and I Don’t understand why it is not sold by the glass. Otherwise, it was a lovely dinner with a superb waitress!

Had wonderful evening with several friends. Our waitress, Joy, was delightful and attentive -- but discreetly left us alone to chat. The food is always excellent. Would love to see a little more variety in the menu but certainly have my favorites on the current one. Understand that prices are rising everywhere, but my only complaint is the high cost of a glass of wine.
