We wanted good cuisine and we got that. The waiters were competent and attentive. The wine list showed good choice - for example in the whites, there was a range from dry , crisp and grassy to the sweeter more fruity ones - and also a range of prices (though none were cheap).The food was well-prepared and presented. If you want stodge (rice, chips etc), you order it as an extra: the main courses come with just the good stuff. This suited us, since we got the good stuff without the stodge. The service was quick. They have made a good choice in limiting the number of items in their menu.
However, we also wanted an above-average dining experience, as a whole, and we did not get that - despite the best efforts of the staff. This was because of the dominant clientele in the restaurant. It was mostly men above a certain age and size, who got very drunk and loud. I suspect these were largely the wealthy guests of the Tribe hotel that the restaurant is part of.
We especially liked the osso bucco.
