Food was excellent. It was hot and very flavorful. Service was on top of things. The cost was a good value for the location. Malbec blend and Pinot Noir were very good and paired well with food.

There was a time when Chesca's food was top rate - sadly those days have passed. It's time for an updated menu and new efforts from the kitchen though service is always solid.
