Food was great, and service blew me away. All smiles, and never more than a few minutes between someone checking in on me.

Couldn't have been nicer. Showed up with an incomplete party and got seated anyway. Staff was very pleasant and the food was very good. A perfect place for a client lunch. Not too loud, great menu and good service.
