A sophisticated and warm space multi levels. Very young vibrant college-age staff. Absolutely delicious mixed drinks. Very sophisticated cuisine with a surprise on every dish.

Outstanding service, which is really the key point of going out for dinner (at least for me). The staff here are friendly, attentive and actually quite personable. Indeed, they made a great evening of it for us. That said, the menu could use some upgrading...More

Always great service. I enjoy the menu choices. Just a little hard to have a conversation due to high ceilings. This place has wonderful character.

We went here for an anniversary dinner on the recommendation of another couple. I was disappointed to see there wasn't any beer selection, just pricey wine that wasn't that good. Food was mediocre. Nothing to run back to. I am not sure if there are...More

Nice atmosphere. Great service. Nice wine list. The menu usually has one entree of each protein. Salads at noon are well done. Inthe evening there is a chicken dish that is so good it's hard to order anything else. On thepeicier side, but worth it.
