    Service was top 3 I’ve experienced. Food was also unique and interesting. The 5 course option is the way to go for a date night. Can tell this restaurant is cared about by staff and owners.

    We went for drinks and happy hour and then had a seating during dinner. We had two separate waitresses and both provided excellent recommendations on food and beverage pairings. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. I will definitely be returning.
