We were part of a large group of diners. Food came swiftly and service was good but our food was only average. Also very pricey place so be prepared to spend.

Simply put - they did everything right. Great food, great service, great wine list, and were just the right mix of attentive while giving you privacy. Located in a home in Akwa - it does not feel overly busy and everything is perfectly prepared. Truly a wonderful meal with friends there

Restaurant was full of business people wearing suits and tie and that's the reason makes this place popular. Hostess is very rude. Staff is okay but they give more attention to people on suits.
