Nice low-key place with several good small plates to share over a drink or two. Of note, the Calamari was very delicious, and surprisingly not fried like everywhere else.

We had a huge table of people - 25! We took over 1/3 of the restaurant. It was touch and go whether they could get us all in (since our group continued to grow daily), but they worked hard to make it happen. To be...More

I walked to this centrally located restaurant in mid-town. It's a pleasant walk from many hotels past historical homes and gardens. The ambiance and food is a step up from many of the restaurants in mid-town and I will definitely return.

What a wonderful surprise to find this great restaurant. First the ambiance is awesome. High ceilings open up the entire restaurant. Staff was excellent and gave some good recommendations. Best of all the food was spectacular. The prices were very fair.

We were here today, with a few friends to have drinks and dinner. We got there just as they were opening and sat at the bar. The cocktail menu is varied to say the least. Really nice concoctions that you don't see everywhere. Of note,...More

I have eaten here several times over the past year or two and they consistently deliver a wonderful meal. Their "tapas" are (very) small plates of tasty tidbits for $4 each or 3 for $10. These are a great starter for the meal or a...More
