I have taken many a client to this restaurant. Never had any issue whatsoever. Great food and superior service. A little on the pricey side but well worth it. Important date or business client type of place Quiet enough to discuss things.

We showed up without reservations to try out this new place. We were met at the front by a very nice gentleman who explained our need for a reservation and then proceeded to find us a small table anyway. This same gentleman also waited on us in a very professional manner. We were well pleased with the food, service and... More

Personal service was unbelievable! Even got to meet chef & owner Peter Brave ! Outstanding atmosphere ! When we looked at the menu we though the prices were a little steep so we shared the Mixed Grill . There was more than enough for both of us.

We welcome you... Again! We're serious about quality dining, but in a relaxed atmosphere. We've won a lot of awards for best overall restaurant, best views, best servers, but we'll never rest on our laurels. The best compliment you can pay us is to come back, and bring your friends!

You can count on us to use the freshest and highest quality ingredients - always. We may occasionally improvise, or even run out of an item, but we will never offer you less than the best. Freshness also offers some flexibility to accommodate special health needs (check out the number of gluten-free items!), And we will do so to the best of our abilities.
