Nice beet salad, sautéed clams, Dover Sole was also delicious. Atmosphere was impressive, however, the air conditioner was really cold. Perhaps it was set for the employees rather than for the customers.

Excellent restaurant, top shelf service. Great food, and presentation. The waiters are extremely attentive. The ambiance, food and service create a wonderful and memorable dining experience. Adult atmosphere. I would not recommend this restaurant for small children. Proper attire is necessary.
