Dined here on business. Highly recommend to take advantage of the free valet parking which is on the side street of the restaurant. This is a small restaurant that is big on flavor and premier level of service! I was fortunate enough to be able...More

We had heard so much for so long about 2825 and finally got in on a Tuesday night for my birthday celebration. Heads up- have patience getting a reservation, it's well worth the effort. The restaurant is on the smaller side hence the tight reservations....More

About 2 years ago, my wife and I went to this highly touted restaurant and left somewhat underwhelmed. That was 2 years ago. Fast forward to last night and we left kicking ourselves as to why it took 2 years to go back. We highly...More
