We've been a few times now and the food can be hit and miss, but the service is always exceptional and we've had some great fine dining experiences. The serving sizes are quite large so be careful not to over-order. The menu has been simplified...More

This restaurant has a very pleasant atmosphere, and lovely decor - very nicely renovated. The meals were good, but too expensive for what you get. Wait staff were very good, efficient and friendly. My eggplant lasagna was lukewarm and I mentioned this to the waiter...More

Was difficult to get service. All aspects from food to wine were expensive. The roasted pumpkin gnocchi was overcooked and very dry. Sauce was tasteless. Partners main was reasonable but unspectacular for the price. Overall a disappointing first and last visit.More
