My dinner lived up to expectations. Moreover, I was impressed by the extent to which the restaurant catered to a table full of food restrictions. Everyone loved their meal. Coming from the San Francisco Bay Area, it was a great value as well.

In a quiet backstreet part of town. Odd. Parking right outside. Extensive food and wine menu. Options for vegetarians. Wine pairing was fun in the start, we were a big group so lots of types to explain for the sommelier when we had starters. But...More
