We arrived during Christmas Week. Maybe 30% occupied. Service exceptionally slow - took about 15 minutes to get a drink. For all the positive reviews this place has received, I just don't get it. Food was average - not fabulous, especially given the prices. French...More

It is normal for a restaurant to charge a corkage fee if you bring your own wine. I understand that; they expect to make some money from the markup on the bottle. But I have never before in my life been to a restaurant that...More

Dined here at 8pm on a weekday. The restaurant smelled like an aquarium. We decided to tough it out, and had dinner, which was acceptable, but nothing to write home about. The staff seemed anxious for us to leave, although they were polite and attentive.

We had dinner it was pricey! Food was excellent the wine list extensive. I was a little disappointed I thought it was a winery restaurant. It was but not in the middle of a working winery. It was right downtown. Good for people watching.

We started with flights of wine and a variety of appetizers and loved each one! My Halibut was perfectly done and dessert was great. Looking forward to eating here again.
