Four of us met for dinner, weekday evening; had reservation. Seated, and immediately greeted by our pleasant server. Atmosphere lively, a bit loud, but still able to converse. Nice dim lighting gave a date mood in a sort of upscale industrial atmosphere. House chardonnay was...More

The place is good in general: delicious food and gentle service. Just take into account is an expensive place and the order takes time.

Small expensive drinks. We didn’t eat but saw a lot of folks coming in to pick up food to go. Our waitress and her trainee were super cool. Clean place. They have a lot of competition in the area for sure. I’d go back
