Most interesting combinations and flavors in all dishes we tried. Bleu cheese soufflé was unique. Salmon and yellow tail entrees and side items were delicious. Great service

Market is consistently excellent. Although a 5 star restaurant the staff is very friendly and the ambiance is warm. The soups are unique, possibly one of a kind. This restaurant is highly recommended.

The restaurant week menu looked quite interesting. The food was perfectly plated, perfectly prepared, portions generous, creative. The ambience was pleasant, although the tables were a bit tight. A major problem is their corkage fee. At $25, it's a tad too high, but charging $50...More
