This is a great restaurant for business lunches because the wait staff is not constantly interrupting. Their menu seems to be influenced with eastern european recipes. Very healthy. I should remember to visit more often, especially if the meeting is with downtown clients.

A range of Romanian-Hungarian food, in fact foods that you find mainly in Transylvania. Snitzel is good- I will never work to fry it home. They have caviar-the real deal- at a decent price. Good bread. Decent service.

When we were there nobody come for a while to get our orders, and then when they did that we waited an hour to be served and it was not a tasteful food, oily, sugary and not authentic as some think.
