I ate her with my wife. We had the asparagus, truffle fries, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and I had the fish entree. This place was super good and our waiter was really great. I think the fried Brussels sprouts were the best thing we had.

The service was great, atmosphere had a great relaxed vibe, and the daily fish special (swordfish) was superb. Highly recommended. Every meal that came out of the kitchen looked delish.
