Exceptional, fun, excellent wine pairings, and each course cooked and presented to perfection! Great conversations with new friends. The restaurant design is modern and classy. Quite simply it just doesn't get any better than this! Chef Dennis and Glen have created a model that you will wish you could enjoy in your own hometown. This is a fine dining experience... More

This is an amazing dinner you have to try, pretty cool to se the chef prepare your dinner while the sommelier explanses the wine. And the food and wine were some of the best we have tryed :) Just rember to book your seat in advance.
