We've been a couple of times with groups of friends and gone for the tasting menu with wine both times and have not been disappointed. Food great and plenty of it with good wines and good service at a bargain price. Can't recommend highly enough

I took my wife here for our anniversary and the experience was second to none. The service was excellent and the food was out of this world.
