Although very expensive, the food and options are fun and delicious. The service is excellent. Tip: Start your dinner before 6 and get the warm olives and other featured happy hour appetizers. The bread basket used to be better.

I do not know but the owners are sophisticated and knowlegible restaurateurs and I would think they would allow you to bring your own wine selection. Corkage at most restaurants is $20 but call and ask 707-826-2345
