    We went to celebrate a college graduation. The service was great - attentive to our needs without being overbearing. The food was fabulous - we got a few apps & everyone got a different dish & there wasn't a morsel left of anything. I'd definitely go back here!

    We were there for their first day serving lunch. We came after Auschwitz exhibition next door which was excellent but we needed to decompress. Great service. Food was good overall. Good beet salad. Ok chicken Parmesan. Excellent crème brûlée. Would definitely recommend.
