Half the price, and there is also a happy hour during the week. It is first come first serve, but what a treat. I had the mussels and frites and it was DELICIOUS. Highly recommended.

My suggestion is to call them directly. They do have at least one private room but I'm not sure how many it holds.

The parking is valet as a part of the Westin Book Cadillac hotel. $10 and if they park you in front of the building, a nice tip is customary.
