The menu was interesting. I have been to this site previously and enjoyed it, however this time I was extremely underwhelmed. Service and quality of food has gone down and a make over sounds a good idea all around.

We go for lunch quite regularly, which are good deals. The tasting menu for dinner is pricier but also good for special occasions. Service is always good, and it's a popular spot for cocktails too.
