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.

Yes, it is BYOB! Good thing because it is an expensive restaurant, but well worth it. I have never seen any kids there and it is somewhat on the smaller side. One of my favorite restaurants in the area.
