“Beyond perfect food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The food is beyond perfect. Best steak in the world and I've travelled the world. I'm serious. Seafood canellonni was excellent. Calm but cool atmosphere. Most underrated place ever. Forget Ruth's Chris. This is the best.

“Quality WIne, great snack, and sommelier included!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

Went there because a friend wanted to try the place out. The friend that I went with has been part of wine clubs for years, and has extensive experience tasting. I had a small plate of olives with a basil remoulade, and it was delicious.

The wine was excellent, and I wish I remembered more of the brands now. Our server's descriptions were right-on, as were her suggestions.

One glass my friend found strange, so he asked to see the bottle. Apparently the liquor supplier had sent them a Merlot in place of a Cab-Sauv / Syrah blend. They were surprised themselves, and offered to give us another glass of the wine we had requested. My friend declined, but they still brought us an additional partial glass each to sample.

So, to summarize: Service - Great. Wine - Great. Food - Great (so far). I'm eager to try them out for dinner, now!

“FANTASTIC!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

My fiance and I went after work for a light supper. The food was amazing, it was one of the best meals I have ever had, we had a shrimp dish, brie and a meatball all of which I would recommend. It is a great sharing restaurant. The wine list was incredible, they aerate the wine for you and serve it in a beautiful decanter. The server was very attentive and really sweet. I would totally recommend going there.

“Most Pleasant Discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011

Visited on a recommendation and very glad I did. I found the dinning area relaxing.

Baked Camembert and the Gratin au Prawns were simply and elegantly presented. Taste was fabulous.

I eagerly look forward to my next visit to try the other offerings.
