Several owners over 30 years but the food seems to remain at a consistently high level. Lots of spaces for quiet conversation and adequate service. Open Mondays since most other nicer restaurants are closed.

I've been here twice for the $60 pre fixe menu. Each time the menu was completely different and every course was well prepared and presented. It's a great place for a date.
