Food and service were great! It used to have a more cozy vibe but seems as if they have added a lot more seating so doesn’t feel as warm and intimate.

Had driven past location several time recently and then checked it on line. Made reservations for wife's birthday as a surprise. The 5 course meal was excellent with additional starter. Everything was well explained and each course had explanation on ingredients and cooking method. While not someplace for an every day meal, for a special occasion it is excellent option. Cost was worth it.

Stefanie and Elvie provided excellent service!!! Took care of any issues that came up while we were there. The door man, Charles, walked us to the elevator and took our party directly to the door. Every staff member that we came in contact with was very knowledgeable and helpful. Will definitely be back!!!!

Great service. Hannah made us our usual complicated request for drinks. She definitely knows how to make a drink!! She always remembers exactly how we like it! Oysters were so yummy with extra hot, horseradish. Lamb chop lollipops were cooked perfect at medium rare and so good!!! Pork chops, so tender and delicious.   Couldn’t have asked for more enjoyable evening.
