The service was superb. The food was outstanding. We had the tasting which featured four plates and wine pairings. Everything was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the scallops with pork belly. This place is a main Madison.

Came here for a birthday dinner while on a business trip. The server was very friendly and helping accommodating changes to menu requests and they even made a special off-menu vegetarian dish. The food was delicious as well.
