My daughter and I had dinner and drinks here recently and we were so impressed with ambiance, service and food. Be sure to stop at the bar before you sit down for dinner. It is pretty special! Actually the whole evening was excellent!

First time dining here. Food, service, happy ambience -- everything was fun and delightful. We ate in the cozy wine cellar -- highly recommend it. Smaller, quieter than upstairs.
