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.

We were encouraged by the staff seating us every time we came to dine that this would be a really excellent dining experience..in their words a bump up in every way..do not believe it. the only bump up was in the price..service was terrible and food was good but not great...never went back

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

We liked that it was a small restaurant with only few tables in a big hotel complex. The food was great, yet overpriced. The service was very good.

The atmosphere did not live up to the website. I had the lamb chops. It was the best food that I had at the five restaurants offered, but it was just slightly above average.
