We ate dinner here on a Friday night. It was crowded. No room at the bar. Luckily we were seated in about 20 minutes. Food was delicious but pricey.

We enjoy coming here. The food is always good, and the servers are great. There is a wonderful fireplace near the entrance - a cute place to hang out and have a cocktail. We usually eat on the patio when the weather permits.
