Everything was superb! The ambience, the wait staff, the meal, all excellent! This is truly the style of dining I've only experienced in NYC. My girlfriend exclaimed at one point "We're going to have our wedding reception here!" (I didn't know we were engaged...lol)

I think I actually remember them identifying a couple items that way but am not sure. When I called to confirm our reservation, they specifically asked about anything they should know regarding our diets.
Price and is there entertainment?
