LOVED the filet mignon and scallops. Everything was absolutely delicious. The Black Walnut Old Fashioned is my new favorite drink. Impeccable service and incredible food!

Brunch is fantastic. Any place that does brunch is the best. Wait staff was quick. And I mean quick. Chizu was our waitress. She was great and attentive. Kept our glasses full of delicious mimosas.
