Food is okay, not as great as they would like to have you think. Prices are high. Music is nice. Staff is a mixed bag - some are very good and helpful, others not so much. This was a better place before the expansion.

The food was fine but they do not offer table service at lunch. Our bill was $65 for 2 people at lunch. I do not drink but my friend did had a couple of glasses of wine.
