This is not what I expected. I thought this is traditional fine dining restaurant and found out that this is a trendy restaurant. The food is quite good.

As I remember, there are small side dining rooms for private parties. Been a while since we dined here so I don't know how much of how it is set up now. Advise a quick call - they are very accommodating!
