Pros: Valet parking, friendly attentive service, varied wine selection Cons: Meals were barely average (pasta dishes way too salty, octopus dish fell flat), atmosphere is stuffy and dated

The food and service were great, but a glitch with the line used to process customer credit cards failed and other customers and I had to pay cash or be prepared for an indeterminate amount of time until glitch was fixed.
