Went there for a business dinner, with a pre-determined menu with several good choices. Service was good, all three courses that I had were very good, ambiance was nice (a separate room, in this case). I wasn't paying, but I noticed the bill, which was...More

We had an enjoyable dinner. Good service, great food and nice setting. The dishes we had were different and complex and good. The eggplant dish I had several different flavors and tastes going on in it, but it worked well. The berry peach crisp was...More

We chose this restaurant because it is vegetarian friendly, and because of the positive TA reviews. All was good. The place was relatively quiet early on a hot Friday evening -- a big plus as we were getting together with family from out of town...More

I’m left speechless. This restaurant visit is a must! It is the coolest bar/ restaurant tucked into this great neighborhood and it is surrounded by other great restaurants, outdoor eating, cute shops, etc. For some unusual reason, everyone at our table ate Chicken in a...More

It’s hard to remember any dish because nothing stood out. Various things seemed interesting on paper but they failed to excite. Even dessert was blasé. The aim is to serve novelty in preference to good food. Everything is palatable so don’t skip eating here if...More

We reserved the small dining room for a private party on Friday night. The space was quite nice -- maybe a little tight for the 14 of us, but it felt cozy and I think it was a good size for the group -- and...More

Hi Holly- I'm sorry you weren't happy with the overall experience. It sounds as though the confusion on the table arrangement was stressful and that's not a great way to start off. Our servers usually check in with parties to see what type of service...More

Unsafe and inappropriate service. This place has an attitude and does not understand what true quality service and food looks like. I've been fortunate enough to eat at a number of 4 and 5 star restaurants all over the world and never have I encountered...More
