Very good restaurant...good food and service. We had a drink at the bar while table was being readied. Food was fantastic. Service was also superb. Get reservations as it gets very crowded...nice atmosphere.

Lovely restaurant with attentive staff and some very good food. The oysters were great, as were the veal chop and grilled peaches. Needs a better wine list.

When we went, honestly, I didn't see kids in the restaurant, that's not to say they are not welcome. I did overhear a guest talking to a waiter about dietary concerns, he told guest he would check with the Chef, so I think... More
