We had reservations, but on a Tuesday evening, it may not have been necessary because it seemed not very crowded. The food was amazing and a good wine selection.

I ate a little earlier than most people so the place was pretty quiet and had to ask someone to wait on me. I ordered salmon that was grilled perfectly with asian type vegetables -- very good.

Entertainment nightly, all genre's. The establishment was packed every night. One night we walked by and a solo of Willy McBride was being belted out by an Irish tenor to a rapt full house. Priceless
