Had dinner there with friends to celebrate my husbands 65th birthday. We indulged on several appetizers...the Pork Belly Taco's were my favorite. Everyone's food came out exactly as ordered, great portion size & temp. Awesome food & service!

This restaurant does not look like much from the outside but is lovely on the inside- soft curtains and dark tones. I had the filet saison( truffled twice baked potato) & asparagus- my hunny had gnocchi w/ lamb ragu. Both were excellent. Wine is overpriced...More
