    Steaks and veal were subpar. Chilean sea bass was great and chicken was good. We are foodies and feel it was overpriced for the quality of the meat. Wed and tuna carpaccio were wonderful. They need to step it up on the meat quality. Ambiance was lovely.

He make great recommendations and knew the menu well. Out hostess was pleasant and helpful and even contacted me to let me know I left my phone behind.. We look forward to our next visit!

    My wife and I had high expectations that changed from the moment we were seated at a 24 x 36 table in the entrance to another room of tables on each side. It was like we were at the beginning of another room seated in the entrance. Atmosphere was loud and amplified by the brick walls and hard floor. Our small table was shown to us with one chair until a worker got up and gave us hers (she was sitting down talking to friends at the table along the isle.) Small cramped eating space and very noisy for us, at least with the table next to us. I think we are done.

    What a fabulous experience! Kevin, our waiter was great! He recommended excellent choices. The gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce was superb. My husband ordered the branzino with oyster mushrooms and green beans and raved about it. The panna cotta with passion fruit purée is to die for. We will definitely return!

    Overall a good experience, but some room for improvement. Our server was quite helpful and attentive but it took a little while for her to get to our table when we arrived and then there was a delay when we were ready for the check. She did not discuss the specials, which would have been helpful. The food was good except I wasn't thrilled with the steak we ordered. It was called the Robespierre something. It was cooked to medium rare as ordered but the char on the outside was overpowering so it tasted like the whole steak was burnt.

    I have dined here a number of times with mixed results. This time was very disappointing. I was seated in a back room on a 2 top that was too small to accommodate the meal. I pointed it out but was dismissed. The service was very rushed. So much so that the waiter was clearing my plate while my fork was still in my hand. Very disappointing experience for a very expensive dinner.

    The food was passable. The chicken breast seemed to be thigh and not a breast, was very small and lacked taste. The waiter was also tending bar and forgot we were there. 15 min after the appetizer, he came and asked us if we wanted anything else, I believe he forgot that he hadn't taken our entree order. A major disappointment in light of the fact that it was Sunday afternoon and the restaurant was only 20% full.
