We dined here after this year's Kentucky Derby. Food was great....we had Sea Bass and Linguini Fruiti de Mare....both delicious and wonderfully prepared. Service was very attentive despite being quite busy because of the Derby. Will definitely come back.

Our food was great and the service was good. Food, especially drink prices were outrageous. $15 for a mix drink, $15 for a shrimp cocktail, and $23 for chicken marsala seems like a bit much. Had a little misunderstanding about our seating upon arrival, but...More

obviously lunch is cheaper than dinner but figure about 20-30 per person which is average for independent downtown restaurants.
