I always love this restaurant. It's relaxing and has comfortable booths. Menu is eclectic. The tuna is excellent as are the salads and breads. Nice bar area as well.

We came here for a special occasion (our son's 30th birthday) and weren't disappointed. Comfortable, hip interior, decent cocktail list, really good wine list. Outstanding service.
