    There really needs to be an update on the dishes. As good as the food is, I want to try something new. Previously the wine pairing/recommendations were excellent - not so this time.

    Wow! This did not disappoint! I read all the rave reviews and now I know why everyone praised the Belly of the Beast for their outstanding food and service. Every course surpassed the previous one, not that you think it’s possible. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!
