    Food was good but just lacked the finesse you would be expecting for the price. Service was outstanding by our young waitress, she certainly made our night with her knowledge and personal touches.

    Food, wine, cheese, (didn't have dessert) noise level, many thoughts have been given to do it right. For example, wooden floor, not concrete or tiles so that people don't have to shout at each other to have a normal conversation, and cheese, which won't kill the taste of wine. Even glass wine lists are for wine lovers. What's a point of serving bad wine when food is great?

    Disappointed! We originally booked the night before but were changed because they now had a function - we were offered a bottle of wine at dinner which we did not get. We ordered 2 steaks and bother were overcooked - both sent back and replacements given. Upon arriving there were 2 large groups/tables which were extremely loud - at times unbearable and couldn't hear each other talk.

    Lovely ambience and very clean resturant however the food was very overpriced and for the quality. Waitstaff were pleasant but service was very average. We had dirty plates left for extended time and were left to pour our own wine. Not what we expected for the cost of dining at this resturant.
