Worth waiting for! Since it was a spontaneous drop in without reservation we had to wait 30 minutes for a table. The food and the service more than compensated for that! My filémignon was cooked to perfection. The wine was well temperatured. Great dinner!

Had lunch with friends and cannot say enough about the service and food. First, the room is very nice and well appointed, and I hope to return for drinks on the outside patio. Food portions were filling and the chocolate dessert after was equally good.

Good plan for a lazy late lunch. The staff is very attentive. The menu is limited but most items are quite good.
