I had lunch with colleagues here, it was good food and a wide range of options on the menu. I thought the prices were a little high for what is fairly casual dining but not too off-putting. I enjoyed the Wild Boar Bolognese. The decor...More

A group of 15 started our bachelor party here. Nice design and archetecture. Only 1 wait staff assisting us. Glasses were rarely filled fast enough. Then when the bill came I was astonished. $2k for average food and moderate service. I would not reccomend.

Excellent food! Great service! The truffle scallops spaghetti was amazing. The salad was delicious and the apple crisp was worth the calories.

This place is filled with wine. Literally to the rafters. Excellent wine list, and the staff is extremely knowledgeable. Plus, great food. Interesting dishes. We were a large group and the diversity of items ordered made everybody very happy and the service was great.

First thing you notice when you enter this place is the gigantic metal doors that seem to guard this place in case they are under siege. When you walk in you notice a huge space with a very industrial feel which I really liked. After...More

Hi John and Geri, My guess is that you are referring to the 'Half off Wine Night' that we used to have on Sunday. While that promotion has ended...we do have a daily happy hour from 3pm to 6pm that features $2 off wines by... More
