Excellent, classic food and exceptional service. Highly recommended. Get a side of pepper sauce with any steak! Escargots also serves classically in the shells. Rad.

I had a rack of lamb and my husband had a filet. We try to go here for special occasions. Tables are packed in so noise level is high. Food is wonderful.
