Top quality food with a flare and beautiful presentation. I suggest you make a reservation as this is a very popular spot.

Fabulous food, great atmosphere, lovely music, great service. My husband's steak was a little underdone (he ordered medium to medium well and it was rare - very bloody), but otherwise, all of our meal was excellent. Our waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable. Great spot.
