I hadn’t been here in a long time, not sure why but I already plan to go back. The food is delicious and easily shared. Staff is attentive. The atmosphere is energetic and fun. Can’t wait to return!

The chef menu is amazing. The price is outstanding. The amount of food is almost to much to handle. The quality is exceptional. And the taste is out of bounds. The wine is pricey but with the food totally worth it. Great experience highly recommend.
