The ambiance was not what was expected from a supposedly romantic resteraunt. The tables around us were very loud, noisy, and obnoxious with zero awareness of others. The food was mediocre: the duck was chewy and over cooked, the lamb had too much fat on it and was also over cooked, the scallops were over cooked and had a chewy rubbery taste, and the brownie was ‘deconstructed’ without it being said in its description. The pistachio dessert and burrata were the only dishes that were if satisfaction.

Most amazing experience ever! The ambiance is beautiful and so romantic, makes you feel like you've been transported to a movie set. The food was impeccable and the service was just as perfect. The food came out in such a timely order. Everyone was so nice and wished us a happy anniversary. This was hands down the best experience I've ever had in a restaurant. The food was delicious. I would recommend everyone to come here.

We went on Saturday to celebrate a 50th birthday. The ambiance is very nice. Mane of the tables overlook the garden area. Our drinks were delicious. The food was very good. However, nothing was served hot. It was not cold but nothing came to the table piping hot. Which struck us as odd because all the food came out very fast. Overall the experience was fine. I do not know we will be rushing back here to celebrate another occasion. On a positive note the cocktails were excellent.

Always great service and good food at this most beautiful establishment. We were a little disappointed that they did away with the Chef’s tasting menu, but accommodated us and still served it. Hopefully they will bring it back with new items for the summer. The standard price fix menu is delicious but we occasionally enjoy the tasting menu.

I recently proposed at the restaurant this past weekend. The staff and manager, Arlind, went above and beyond by accommodating me in every way possible. The service was phenomenal, the food was amazing, and the professionalism overall was unmatched! They made our special night one to remember and will for sure be revisiting soon! They are great with events and dining overall! Highly recommend! Thank you again to the whole staff and managers who made this happen!

The food and service were amazing. Our waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. Enjoyed the live piano music and beautiful interior. The only negative is that we sat by the window near the courtyard and saw 2 rats running around the whole time we were there. Not the restaurants fault but very distracting.

This was one, if not the most, romantic restaurant setting I have ever been. From the moment we walked in the whole evening was wonderful. The restaurant was very intimate and the service and food was outstanding.
From the outside you would barely know the rest is there, not flashy signed ect, just a street number. That says it all, the best places do not need to announce themselves!

Has an amazing experience. Service food ambiance are all superb. Proposed to my girlfriend and they were super accommodating and discreet. Was the perfect experience. They even recorded the proposal. Couldn’t have been better. Superseded my expectations. Everyone should eat here. Romantic occasion or not.

Bar was closed so we were not able to sit at the bar. We were seated immediately on the first floor in the small room at the back of the restaurant. Fixed price menu was served. We had the beef Wellington cooked perfectly to medium rare. Started with grilled octopus. Finished with carrot cake ( an extremely small portion). Complimentary glass of champagne was served as it was my wife’s birthday.

Always a pleasure to go there.

This is the best restaurant for all of your romantic moments. Red roses, candlelight, fireplaces, gorgeous exposed brick walls and burgundy leather sofas. The food was 3 Michelin star quality. The service and hostess were very warm, friendly, and attentive. We have been for New Years and Anniversaries. However, this last time we had dinner, I realized how there should be many more reasons to enjoy this place throughout the year. We look forward to our next visit.

Beautiful restaurant and service was attentive. Menu was way overpriced for the quality of the food. Food was good but not excellent which is what I would expect from these prices. However the ambiance made up for the food quality and I still had a lovely evening. Would I go back? Probably not.
