Been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. Décor is phenomenal (it's an old bank); service is impeccable; and food is outstanding. A bit pricy, but worth every penny.

Great service, wonderful food. I loved that several of the entrees could be ordered in "appetizer size", which means I was actually able to be served an appropriate amount of food. Hope that popover recipe is on the internet somewhere.
