We met family here for lunch. The service was very good as was the food. Nice atmosphere overlooking the Reedy river, right next to the Peace Center.

The atmosphere and decor are casual but the food is upscale, as are the prices. Our waiter was friendly and professional. I had the osso busca which was very good, although everything was on the tepid side. The Manhattans are great.
