Great selection of food including entrees or small plates if you'd prefer, and really tremendous wait staff, knowledgeable, friendly, not intrusive but attentive. And that back patio is a spectacular little oasis in the middle of the city.

Excellent food and exotic desserts. The service was also very good, water glasses were always kept full. Waiters were informative and helpful. Despite the odd location, it is definitely worth going to. Recommend Baked Alaska for dessert.
