Atmosphere good without table crowding (even bar service). Food excellent quality and portions. Some servers quite good but also a main waiter what was very sullen. Decent wine list.

I stopped in for a cup of French Onion soup at lunch. Have to say > was very disappointed in the taste. Presentation was great but no flavor. Maybe I'm watching too many cooking shows!

Stopped in before a show at Florida Theater. We were running late, so needed something quick. Had Duck Canopy and Escargot appetizers. Both were fabulous! Can’t wait to go back for a full meal. Very nice atmosphere and service was great!

Nice atmosphere. Service was good but not great - waiters fixed some minor issues. Wine choice was excellent. Appetizers were very good. My steak was very good but not prime. Would go back but not frequent.
