    First time eating here. Prices are high and don’t match the quality of some items. Service was good we were seated promptly. The wine list is awful! I was in the wine biz for 20 years and cannot figure out why a place with prices like they charge has such a poor wine selection. I settled for an Oregon Pinot -16$ a glass and I can buy the whole bottle for 14$! I would pay the higher price for a decent glass. If I return and the list is the same I’m drinking water or beer. Get your act together you have a good thing going but you can do much better.

    Seated at a table close to the bar and kitchen, so it was a high traffic and louder location. Food was excellent. Staff bussing tables were a bit too hasty in picking up plates. I was still chewing my last bite from my plate when the fella asked to take my plate. Just felt like we were being rushed. Overall the meal was good and our waitress was attentive.
