High quality food, service, ambiance, wine selection, etc. I love everything about this place and have been on multiple occasions. My only issue is that once I was served the wrong cut of beef. Otherwise a flawless track record!

We celebrated a birthday here, and completely enjoyed the food, service and elegant space. The room is renovated since I was last here, and gives a very sophisticated vibe. Expensive, but worth it for special occasions.
