The food is exceptional in taste and beautifully presented. The service is impeccable. The atmosphere is refined. The mushroom soup, the cobia, the short rib, the peanut butter panna cotta were all delicious! Thanks for a memorable pre Valentine's Day dinner! Still the best!

What a wonderful find! I never would have guessed that such a wonderful restaurant would be hiding in a shopping center. This is an upscale restaurant with a varied and imaginative menu. The service was great, the food was fantastic.

Scheduled a lunch appointment with a client and arrived to find that they had no table for us. We were seated at the bar and the service was very good, but it jut wasn't very private.
