Loved the oyster Rockefeller (or Florentine?). Steak was well aged but not most tender. Lamb was very tasty. Prices are very high. Nice Greek salad.

There is street parking only available. I'm not sure if there are designated handicap spots or not. You may want to contact the restaurant for assistance.

I didn't take notice to be honest as we went to just have steak. I'm sure they have non meat items on the menu. I would not recommend their sides though as they were greasy and over cooked.
