Great ambiance, great service, great food and super good management. The pork hock is fantastic and desserts are extra special - Natasha is a great manager and keeps the service and food consistently at a high quality. Strongly recommend this place.

For a family birthday gathering, it was wonderful - inventive, delicious cocktails, beautiful ambience, incredible food, wine, and desserts (everything was gluten free), and faultless service. Thank you, Longgrain - we can't wait to celebrate here again.
