The servers were very accommodating. The shareable side dishes were a great way for everyone to try different things. Even though it is definitely a high-end restaurant, the cocktail prices were surprisingly lower than what I would have expected, which was a great surprise.

Our meal was great, but expensive! We expected more moderate pricing, but enjoyed the clam chowder, shaved Brussels sprout salad, & wedge salad. Our waitress was great, constantly refilling our waters as well as answering questions about artwork on the walls.

We visited for my birthday and we weren't disappointed. Our server Stephen was spot on with his service and very pleasant to talk to. It really made the experience something special. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
