We made last minute reservations and they were kind enough to squeeze us in for dinner, with the caveat that they had a big group coming later on in the evening. We arrived and were shown to a beautiful red banquette in the downstairs level....More

Had dinner here with a colleague midweek; very busy but they squeezed us in. Excellent food, very pleasant service and a nice selection of beers. Only apparent downside was an over priced wine listMore
