We went for drinks and dinner. We sat at the bar. This place is hopping. It is full of locals and tourists. Very fun atmosphere. We had steaks, which were perfect. This is not a cheap place. We enjoyed it alot!

Dinner can strain a budget but lunch & brunch are much more afordable. This is a relatively small lovely restaurant with excellent food & menu choices offering something for everyone. A friendly & experienced staff welcomes Hollywood stars & local residents wih equal aplomb.

This was a nice visit. This establishment has a bar, but I liked the fact that it is separate from the actual dining area. We were able to sit and have a nice conversation and not be interrupted by those watching the World Series. The...More
