No reservation, no problem. However, restaurant only half full with all diners sitting on top of each other. Not sure why everyone had to sit in the same part of the room. The food was reasonable but did not meet expectation.

Great atmosphere and friendly service, but food was a major disappointment. Overcooked and very dry steak, cold sauce, overcooked duck, ravioli was good. Way too expensive for what it is

Defo worth coming back1\! Menu has changed but the quality is still present. Would recommend the new dishes (Scallops...) and chateaubriand worth a shot! Thanks to the waitstaff always present and smiling.
