You will wait for a table unless you are on the early side, but it is worth the wait. We waited at the bar, and bartender is excellent and personable. Our food was everything we had heard it would be and we will be back!

If you’re looking for a fancy place worth the wait, this is the place. Ambience, food, and service are all a solid 10. The duck was perfect, and my husbands beef burgundy was delectable. Will return!

Food was delicious. Wine list could be better. Champagne needs to be revised. Great Service. Reservations a MUST.

Since they don't take reservations we were able to wait around one night and get a good seat at the bar. The hostess told us the estimated wait was two and a half hours! The food was wonderful and the wine was tasty. I would...More
