Great food, excellent service, great wine cellar, fantastic live music. If you're expecting a "bar and grille", you came to the wrong place. This is more "suit and tie" than "jeans and t-shirt".

We had a formal dinner of grilled lamb, pasta and veal, and french onion soup. Excellent cuisine! Service was also good and our waiter Alex was very accommodating but polite! Portions are rather large from our normal fare. Plating was appetizing. We shall return!
