The food and service were fantastic! For such an intimate place everything flowed well and we never felt crowded. Nathan was very attentive and friendly and we appreciate his service very much.
My only complaint is that there were two larger parties one seemed to be a bachelorette party and they were very loud. For a large place this normally wouldn’t be a big deal but for such a small setting it would have been nice for the manager/owners to ask them to at least try and keep it down a little. They may have had a good time but the rest of us needed earplugs.

When we got to the restaurant they already had our table waiting for us, so we didn’t had to wait which was great. It is a very nice restaurant, really private, and great for a celebration such as New Years Eve, it also is very picturesque, it just has a vibe of happiness al over the place. Everybody working in the restaurant had the best actitude and were extremely nice. The food was great, really tasty and just indescribable, the special menu they had for New Years Eve was just perfect for the occasion. Amazing experience in an amazing restaurant, we loved it.
