I went in for an early dinner (before 6pm) but already a waiting list. It was worth the wait. The food and drinks were awesome. I had the steak that was out of this world. My colleague had the Tuna and they said it was...More

One of the best homemade veggie burgers I've ever had with a great ambiance. My company enjoyed the meat dishes too - Everyone was happy!

The restaurant was lovely, there was live music and the staff was excellent. We found the food to be lacking. We tried the special grilled artichokes. Two were served with a spicy sauce. The artichokes were very peppery and had nothing to eat on them....More

Rather "corporate" in its approach to cooking. Nothing particularly unique, but food is usually good. Biggest weaknesses include the fact that at this price point (entrees are between mid-$20 to mid $30 range), the restaurant serves you no complimentary bread basket. I seem to recall,...More
