The food was outstanding and very well priced. $115 (?) for a very generous 6 course tasting menu was a steal. You can chose the 4, 5 or 6 course option and just indicate exactly what dished you want from the menu. Well prepared fresh ingredients in a great setting. Well worth the visit.

This was one of the best and most memorable meals I've had in my life. It was equivalent with places like Le Bernardin and other multiple Michelin star restaurants. The food was outstanding and unique. The ambiance was quiet and comfortable. The service was perfect, friendly but not watching over you. We even mentioned we liked the small abalone shells... More

My wife and I ate in the restaurant, a distinction, as it is for a 4 or 5 or 6 course meal. The bar area, which is very nice, has the old favorites "ala carte" menu we were told Some of our courses were Lobster Tortelloni, Black Cod, each had a risotto and they even had fresh summer truffles, Chawan...

Took my wife for her b-day, a 4-course meal was $78. It's not too shabby for a michelin star rated place. Not to mention, portions were just right. Definitely try their Black Cod and Black Pepper Pan Cotta...but not the Chocolate Mess (TOO SWEET). Everything else on their menu was fantastic!

Everything was fantastic! Their Black Cod, their Black Pepper Pan Cotta was to die for. 4 Courses for $78 is not too shabby at all for a Michelin rated restaurant!

Place was packed! Sat in bar area, bartender had to come from around bar to take our order. Meanwhile the owner kept coming to the table next door interrupting our dinner. Not enough food, plates were very small! Apparently only if you are VIP will you get attention. So if your an average Joe Smo you will not get the... More

Certainly one of the better restaurants I've ever been to. Really hit on all notes with great ambiance, excellent service and wonderful food. The restaurant is small with only a handful of tables, but allowed for a more personalized, intimate experience. The meal is served in courses and you are able to choose from several items on the menu. It's... More
