The salad bar is fresh. Food is very good, they also serve brown butter with the seafood upon request! It can be hard to get a reservation last minute.

We had a great dinner here, my wife loved it and she's a real foodie. Asked why I did not take her here earlier. Its a bit pricey but worth it for a great meal.

Will need to find a parking spot on the street. Best place is one block west of the restaurant off of 20th street. Parking can provide a minor challenge.
