You will get a lot of specialities from the surf and turf and mediterranean,tasty, but not really the real thing. Considering the size of the serving it is pretty over-priced, but you pay for to be among a cool clientele.

Everything about this restaurant is great--from the valet parking to the dessert. The experience is pricey, but worth it if you are taking a client to lunch or dinner and the boss is paying, or you are taking your spouse out for a special occasion.
