The food was amazing and service impeccable. Ricky provided excellent and friendly service. Mike provided wonderful insight on the wine list and helped us pick a beautiful bottle of wine. The bar is great and the atmosphere is very comfortable!

We walked by Anson a couple of days ago and read the menu - yum! It was too early for dinner, so we made reservations for another night. I'm sure glad we did! We started with the crab and brie fondue. Yes, it's as rich...More
