Over priced with lots of phony stuffiness and stupid expensive food an wine. We had a starter for two with a bottle of wine. That is as far as we wanted to go at this place. I would not recommend this establishment.

The restaurant is very well located - in the very center of the city in the Solis theater. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive. The only bad comment is about the price.
