The service was excellent. The fish was excellent but very skimpy considering the price. I didn't appreciate dogs being allowed in the eating area especially when it had been raining. Wet dog smells, ugh!

Visited for lunch and enjoyed the food and the top-notch service. There are many unique dishes as well as more traditional offerings. The food is just part of the experience. You also take in a remarkable, classy atmosphere.
