Excellent Valentine's Day Prix Fixed menu, nicely prepared, very nice ambience, very attentive and pleasant waitstaff (Kelsey was sooo sweet and did a fab job), and incredible value. Never been before but we'll be back.

Resturant was really small and cozy, yet it was bustling with people. I had no issue with the food even though it was a fixed menu for Valentines Day. There is a bar on the top of the resturant that I had the opportunity to check out while waiting to be seated. The service was something to improve on, but I believe they were running a skeleton crew on one of the most busiest nights during the year, so there's that. Overall, I have already recommended this place to others and hope to return again.

The food and service was excellent. This restaurant is known for serving small portions that are shared, allowing a greater experience of their exceptional food. Prices are reasonable considering the quality.

My wife and I went for Valentines dinner tonight. The food ranged from good to very good. They had a package deal for the occasion which included wine or champagne. The re d wine was marginal. The service was good for most all of the me. In wife told the manager how great our server was; big mistake. the main entrees we waited an hour for the deser

We tried this place for a night out. What a big disappointment. Their idea of tapas food is putting some ingredients on 2 toasted pieces of bread. If they would called them cristini then would make sense. But even that was done very poorly. Don't think they have a trained chef, only cooks, even that, someone should tell them chopped raw onions is not the right topping for anything except maybe salad. We will never go back. Thinks for ruining our night:-(

The food is good and is priced well. The menu is a by all over the place but some favorites were the Brie tapas plate, the beef tartare and the banana bread bread pudding. Really delicious drinks too!

The fire alarm went off twice while we were eating. We were assured, "this just happens sometimes, nothing to worry about." Uhhhh...? Really? It was really noisy and all of the tables were packed so closely to other tables I felt like I was eating with strangers rather than on an intimate date. The food here used to be really good but they keep changing it and it's just not the same. I get tired of having to figure out the menu all over again each time I go and seeing favorite dishes disappear. Or ordering them and finding it's different. This place was just disappointing. It used to be one of our favorites but we probably won't be coming back.

Had not been there for several years. The menu has been expanded. Thai calamari, lobster mac and cheese, Jidori chicken were some of our favorites.

Took our friends here for dinner. Since we came for an early 4:30 dinner, we were introduced to the Happy Hour menu. It was fun picking and choosing various items to try. We had a wonderful time and the food and wine was very good. We will definitely be back again!
