Great atmosphere, excellent piano entertainment from NYC and good food. It's a don't miss. The decore is very elegant without being stuffy. The bar area is always a happening scene.

We were invited for breakfast here on last day of our vacation. Sitting outside is great to enjoy the view and people watch. The food was good but overpriced,
