The food here is excellent, you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It is a small place so reservations are a must. I would call well in advance of the day you wanted to dine there. It is pricey but a great...More

Nice place to meet and dine with friends. Most of us ordered sole but the meat eaters were happy as well. Portions were ample. Good wine list and cocktails prepared well. Very good service.
