The food is exceptional in taste and beautifully presented. The service is impeccable. The atmosphere is refined. The mushroom soup, the cobia, the short rib, the peanut butter panna cotta were all delicious! Thanks for a memorable pre Valentine's Day dinner! Still the best!

What a wonderful find! I never would have guessed that such a wonderful restaurant would be hiding in a shopping center. This is an upscale restaurant with a varied and imaginative menu. The service was great, the food was fantastic.

Scheduled a lunch appointment with a client and arrived to find that they had no table for us. We were seated at the bar and the service was very good, but it jut wasn't very private.

Attractive decor, good service. Unfortunately the food was less appealing. We had the tasting menu which was reasonably priced. The house salad was plain, the risoto seemed soggy. The sea bass was not bad, but I have had more flavorable preparations.

There was a small snag with our large group reservation and we had to be split into 2 different rooms. The quality of the food completely made up for this. It was the best restaurant we visited all week!
