An extremely pleasant evening of good food, relaxed atmosphere within a refined setting. We found the pacing between the courses to be just right. Service was seamless as it was efficient. I prefer not to have wait staff who are overly-attentive and formal but at the same time being acknowledged. The right balance was achieved here last night.

We happened upon this restaurant located near our hotel without reservations. The place was completely full but we were greeted warmly, provided a seat, water, menus and told it would be a brief wait. We were seated at a lovely table....the tables are spacious yet cozy with a lot of room between tables. The sommelier approached us within a few... More

Fantastic food. Fantastic service. Fantastic atmosphere - quiet well spaced tables in separate rooms. Great choices on the menu and great choice of wines. The location is fine, a little out of the way and be ready for the hill if you are walking there. Certainly worth 5 out of 5 but I took off a point because of the... More

Good food in a charming setting. Good wine list and prices for wine Derek reasonable. I like the fact that fellow dinners were well dress despite the lack of a dress code. Thanks to the exchange rate our meal seemed reasonable given the quality.

We were seated in a lovely side room and had excellent service ... Except for the cocktail party just outside the door. I was disappointed that we were not offered a glass of wine or some small appetizer or bread until those guests went upstairs for dinner. I had the rack of lamb and duck fried potatoes. Good but not... More

A little pricey but the food and service is very good. Very centrally located. Wine list is good and even the lower priced ones more then acceptable.
