    I have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. The food and service are consistently excellent. Love the fish of the day and the bread. I had the cream of cauliflower soup this time and it was delicious. My friend had the cold watermelon soup and it was very flavorful! Having lunch here is a treat👍

    We had a last minute change from 3 people to 4 people, and I noticed that they originally set up the table perfectly for 3 with the birthday decorations on it. The team quickly and discreetly rearranged the seating to allow for the additional person, and no one in my party even noticed. The service can't be beat here! Shoutout to all the front staff for their outstanding service!

    We came across this old favorite (its been years!) - what a great evening. Professional service and the food was outstanding (seabass, short ribs and filet) and found some great wine downstairs to enjoy it with. Will be back!

    Incredible as usual! Mushroom appetizer is so delicious, you think it can’t get any better, the the Duck Confit and Short Rib dishes came out and did not disappoint. Duck had the perfect crispy skin, and the short rib was so tender it melted in your mouth. Wine list is great with may choices - obviously, since they sell wine - if you’ve never been - GO!
