Stopped in here for late night dessert. Were promptly and courteously seated and ordered. Service was excellent and the key lime cheesecake was very good. Restaurant was very very busy for 10pm at night. Glad we stopped in.

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and

You can call in advance but I don't think they take reservations. The best time to go is around 6 pm after that it gets really crowded. Enjoy!!!!
