Wonderful Happy Hour with small plates available that are varied and delicious. More relaxed fine dining available as well. Friendly and knowledgable wait staff. I quite often take visitors there. There is a delicious Sunday Brunch menu along with the regular offerings. I've always been satisfied and have been there over a period of over 16 years.
