Supper under the indoor tree softly lighted with twinkle lights woven into the spreading branches. Food was upscale served on white linen. Dress up or not, you'll enjoy the attentive service and food.

My wife took me here for my birthday dinner and it was a really nice place. I really enjoyed the romantic relaxed atmosphere. Food was also very good, we both had sushi and were really pleased with our choice. I definitely recommend this place.
