    Retriever is one of those rare restaurants that has a very noisy, active bar vibe, but seats guests in an upscale, more sedate room that feels fully integrated with the activity. It's both fun and conducive to conversation. Service was amazingly efficient and enthusiastic. Limited menu--I would have loved to find oysters Rockefeller and such. But our dinner choices were fresh and good.

    At times very noisy but in general typical noise level for a busy restaurant. Service is very good and very nice wine selection.
