We enjoyed the fine evening in a wine cellar setting. The chef/owner visited each table and was charming. Presentation of the courses was artistic, and the food was excellent.

Service great and the food was excellent. Lots of seafood and great sauces. Waiters went out of their way to make sure we were happy. Expensive but worth it.

My friend and I took a cooking class that was so exceptional, we made dinner reservations for another night. The chef and staff gave us a lot of personalized instruction during the cooking class. They paired the meals we were preparing with perfect wine choices. The chef and staff were welcoming and warm and clearly enjoy what they do! I... More

It included more than those courses with other small items sent by the chef, who come about and talks with all the patrons. We also opted for... More

The setting is fine but the "Trust Me" tasting menu was a big disappointment. The chef goes through the options with you beforehand, but like a... More

Our group was seated in the room upstairs. The setting is impressive with a modern white chandelier centered over the table. The food is definitely well put together in a creative style. The service is truly outstanding. It was certainly an excellent choice for our evening.
