Went for a quick bite for dinner and had soup, salad, and a shrimp dish. Service was generally good as was the food, but nothing special. Shrimp dishes were lacking shrimp! Probably better off ordering fresh fish here for better results!

I was alone while travelling and actually felt very safe everywhere I went. Several restaurants have happy hour specials, but I don't drink so I really could not recommend a specific place.

We source the finest, sustainable & local ingredients to create handcrafted food & beverages. Our setting is unmatched and the best casual, neighborhood dining in the West End. The bar is ornately decorated with massive mirrors, large columns and a multitude of glowing candles. These, along with the open kitchen where flames leap from the grill, create a warmth and intimacy in a casual atmosphere.
