Modern seafood restaurant nicely done out. Great service and food was good but not exceptional. Did well see serve 100 people quickly as part of a private function.

Fabulous restaurant, perfect service and amazing food. The lobster was steamed perfectly, escargot was prepared in an excellent fashion and the wines were incredible. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

We had a group of over 100 for dinner (unsure of number of attendees). The restaurant was closed to the public for our private event. The service was great and the food was excellent. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Cheesecake was phenomenal. Salmon and steak were ok. Truffle fries were great. We had hoped to be more wowed based on the price. 2 diners, 3 drinks, 1 desert... $158.00. Wouldn't make a point to revisit.
