A complete menu, ala carte in nice surroundings but can be very loud. Quarters are cramped, keep room for desert

Looking for a great meal while on business. The service from John the bartender, was superior. Both the wine he suggested and the halibut were phenomenal! I will be returning.

This might be the coziest place I've ever eaten. Tiny little corner spot. Lots of windows. Wrap-around bar. Great service. We just stopped in for dessert. Had cannoli. Staff treated us fantastic even though we only spent $4. Wonderful experience!!
