Looking forward to an evening of quiet dining, a comfortable group of three, we were offered a table right at the open kitchen - service area. When we requested a more quiet area, there were three tables open, we were told THOSE were only for four people. ??? A table for three is the same as a table for four.... More

Unfortunately that night, the other tables in the restaurant were already reserved and we are sorry for the misunderstanding. We try to accommodate requests for table seating as... More

We both ordered the soup which was cream of lentil and fennel. OMG delicious. To the point that my boyfriend asked if there were refills haha I... More

The entire experience was wonderful. From the ease of making reservations for our large group to the quality of the food...it was all terrific. The wait staff were friendly, efficient, personable and adaptable. The food was delicious with creative presentation, diverse flavors, savory spices and fresh ingredients. The most impressive was their ability to cater to a ten year old... More

Given the great reviews on Trip Advisor and elsewhere, my friends and I were excited to have our girls night out here. We normally do brunches, but opted for a dinner so that we could have more time to chat. We only meet up 3-5 times per year since we live in different cities, so we appreciate our time. Sadly,...

There are always food I don't usually eat but as they are served in appetizer size portions - it's great to try & I invariably end up acquiring a taste for it. Service is also amazing - they even remember your cocktails. Great... More
