First off, no need to make a reservation. Started the Meal with an Irish Spring cocktail consisting of Jameson Irish Whiskey and Lemonade. Chose a very healthy and filling Risotto of Barley, Kale, Mushrooms and Salmon. Delicious.

Went there for a business activity during the lunch. The food was good and the setting fits perfectly well for a private event by a group of 50 people. I would recommend to stop by and get some bites.
