We dined here May 23, 2017. They had a prix fixe menu, 3 courses for $35. Every option looked appealing and every bite was a delight. Portions are perfect. Waiters were very professional and the bar staff made incredible cocktails. They had a Mezcal Guava Margarita special that was right up my alley. I also enjoyed a glass of Tempernillo... More

Gourmet quality selections and presentation. Tuesdays are a "good deal" night, where you can dine Prix Fixe for $35. Appetizer, ANY entree, and dessert. All were excellent. Soft shell crab offered this week was as good as any I've ever had. My wife's pork schnitzel portion was generous, tender and tasty. Lots of wine options, very reasonably priced by the... More

This place was a breath of fresh air. Brilliant dishes, expertly crafted and presented. The atmosphere was very intimate, despite being crowded. I was amazed. The service was great. The food was delicious. The only downside is that you really need to make a reservation to eat here.

When we arrived, we were seated at a table next to the front window, which appeared to be the "table of honor". Our menus had a congratulatory message, just for us. Then, we were give complimentary glasses of champagne. The service was excellent,... More

Went here on a Saturday night and were seated right way as we had a reservation. The place is small and busy so plan ahead. The staff was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is small but everything we had was great. From the brussel sprouts to the scallops, lasagna, seafood stew and salmon. Everyone also enjoyed the desserts and... More

On each occasion, the dining experience was superb, with great wine selections, delicious meals and impeccable service in a warm, welcoming and I would even say romantic atmosphere.... More
