Great restaurant

Wonderful food; great staff, very detailed oriented. Only negative is it is a bit small and we were seated in the little bar area where only one table could fit; but overall a great restaurant. Will definitely return.

Went for dinner on Saturday night, we ordered bottled water that was room temperature.
