We had reservations well in advance but had to wait 30+ minutes to be seated. We noticed everyone else was being seated and we became annoyed. Finally after being seated our waiter took our order. He was not very personable. The whole evening was lack...More

We just popped in for late night cocktail and a snack. Lively atmosphere. Heard dinner was excellent. The lamb chops were great, and the bar staff were very attentive.

Great food served by top quality staff in an eclectic setting. NOTE - jackets are required for men. The fish and beef items were delicious,as were all the starters. The food is expensive, but the great quality and uniqueness almost justify it.

Our party of eight had a reservation. We arrived at roughly the same time as someone (who??) whom the entire staff was falling all over. We stood like invisible people. Interesting to observe that most of the diners and people in the bar were older,...More

You can, but you really should stick for the meal. You can go low key with a burger, if that is your thing. Good people watching, great atmosphere.
