6 course food and wine pairing. Great food, fantastic wines. Romantic ambience (perhaps the Gregorian Chant music not quite perfect) and excellent service. Wine portions on the small side, especially being such good wines. Really enjoyed it and reasonably priced.More

Granita is always exceptional, menu changes by season and never dissapoints. Great for romantic getaway and intimate dining. No children allowed which is great for some relaxing time.
