First of all, a restaurant should not put an age restriction. Parents who elects to pay $40 per plate will notice a kids menu is not available. Service was poor and food was average for a high end restaurant. We had a terrible experience because the water server and waiter was downright lazy. We felt that it was a chore... More

This restaurant was a surprise with the quality of food. Really wasn't expecting anything so good, eat there two of our three nights, and would have done the third but meet some friends, who were also staying in area.

While the options leave a little to be desired, the food was very tasty and creative. We ate here to celebrate our anniversary. Was a little pricy for what we received, but in cases like this you are paying for the environment and exclusivity. Enjoyed the experience, but didn't make plans to return during out stay.

We ate our anniversary dinner here and loved it. The ambiance was quiet with muted lighting. Our Waiter team had impeccable timing. Always there as we wanted service, but never intruding. The food was absolutely delicious
