The inside of the restaurant lacked lighting for day time. The food was over priced. Do not be shocked to see a 20% Gratuity tagged to your bill.

Wonderful place with amazingly delicious food in a quiet, elegant and friendly atmosphere. Every dish is presented beautifully. Garnishes are taken to a new level. I have no complaints, only praise. I'm so glad we tried it out!!
