We were a party of 6. We had to book nearly a month in advance and accept terms of a table minimum and a prix fix menu. I'd do it again. It was fantastic! Unlike the main dining, the "alcove" table (which seats up to...More

Visited with three others on a Wednesday night. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive. The food did not disappoint and was well executed. Overall a great place to enjoy some good food and have fun eating.
