We enjoyed our meal in spite of the cramped quarters. The salads were unamazing; my husband liked his Bistro salad more than I liked the Caesar--it lacked the bite of a truly good Caesar (the dressing seemed watered down). We doubled-down on seafood and won both times. Crab cakes were perfectly put together. The salmon was finished with crispy edges.... More

It can be crowded and a bit loud, but both the food and the service are excellent. Not cheap, but what good meal is these days. Recommended.

Great dinner. Environment. Servers outstanding. We had grilled seabass on spinach with asparagus. Great cauliflower appetizer. We love this place. High end price but worth the experience.
