Visited this restaurant twice during our stay. Both food and service are excellent. Wish I had time to try even more of their menu. Perfectly located by our hotel. Its a good tip to book table in advance as the place is very popular

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.
