Have visited numerous time over the past five years. Place has really slipped in the past year. Non-existent service from a wait staff whose main concern is their looks. Took 45 minutes for main course to arrive. Nevertheless, prices continue to march skyward.

a mega scene of young hip beauties and the older crowd who wants to look at them but the food is the BEST if you're able to focus on it with all the people watching distractions.

The grilled shrimp were delicious. The pasta was a tiny portion with about 5 clams and uncooked squid. Drink prices were outrages. $18 for a mixed drink that requires the bartender to do some work, ok, but $18 for a house shot isn't acceptable. The...More
