Great, friendly and highly professional staff and the food is fantastic. We liked so much we went back the same weekend. Nouvelle cuisine, fresh salad, and the bar selection is also excellent. “Best in town”

A classy little place with very crowded seating in a noisy environment. High prices here because you are getting gourmet entrees, that you won't get elsewhere. Eclectic appetizers that we found quite filling. Main entrees were very unique with decent size portions. However, not for...More

Good service , unspectacular food and pricey. Started with the hamachi sashimi for $18. Three thin pieces of sashimi arrived and they had little flavor. The wasabi or whatever it was that accompanied it was lacking flavor as well. The other party had the octopus...More
