Wine Cask5 star(s)

 We recently dined at Wine Cask for our very first time. Everything about our visit was exceptional: the decor, the service, the food. High coffered ceiling of dark wood, authentic 19th century paintings on the walls, large flower arrangements, and a giant fireplace. All very elegant and upscale, without being pretentious or snooty. We were there for lunch, and the menu had almost too many tempting choices. I selected the Kobe beef cheeseburger, and it was the best I've ever had! Others in my party had the Reuben and Club sandwiches, which they also loved. Next time, I may try the filet mignon enchiladas. I wish I lived closer so I could go there more often! Highly recommended.
