Food was great - well styled and tasty. The place was a bit dark and noisy, we could clearly hear all conversation from the near table. No deserts, but who needs it after a great meal

Love this place. Great happy hour options. Delicious menu. The tuna was excellent and everything that accompanied it was delicious. They serve complimentary mini chocolate mousse after your meal. A nice treat to finish off a great meal.
