We went for lunch. This is they way a restaurant should be managed. Food was beyond excellent and the server was well informed concerning glutan free food. The meal was changed tastefully to conform with the needs of the guest. Service could not be better!

My wife and I had the pleasure of our fourth visit to "the temple" in as many years. Perfect service, atmosphere and food--as always. From the noise and crowds on the street one enters a sort of cocoon, filled with flowers, white linen, velvet banquets....More
