Excellent gourmet cuisine. Fun and unique signature cocktails and desserts. All absolutely delicious! Knowledgeable staff. Friendly staff. Kind of pricey (but if the servings were just a bit larger it would be well worth it). That being said we are glad we celebrated there. We will be back!!

Was there to celebrate my SIL’s birthday. Everything was delicious. We enjoyed the espresso martinis, calamari, stuffed zucchini blossoms and the chicken and waffles. Zero complaints from our group. I understand why the reviews are great, it’s an awesome place to dine.
