I was pleasantly surprised at how good the salmon was - I think it's called Sparkling Salmon. I was worried it would be weighted down with a heavy sauce that I would have to scrape off - but no! It was a light sprinkling of nuts. Also, 2 of us walked in without a reservation at 6:30 on a Saturday night and the place was packed. Instead of waiting an hour for a table, we sat at "the bar" with no wait. The bar area includes some small tables that were fine with us, comfortable and even pretty private. The staff was young and vibrant. Oh yea - and the Merlot was exceptional.
