Our work holiday party was held here this year. I was taken aback right off the bat when the coat check didn't allow us to check purses. The operator said there was no room. Upon further inspection (I peered in) it appeared there was plenty of room. So, we had to haul our purse around all night. The upstairs area was great for a party, but I wish that they would have cleared the dance floor a bit more by moving the tables when practically everyone at the party was up there dancing and space was really tight. The food was good, but in the buffet line they would only allow one ravioli per person! It was crazy. The steak was excellent and the appetizers were similarly delicious.
