We have been to this establishment at least six times. It is as good as any food that I have sampled across the globe, country and state. The atmosphere is very pleasant with a bar off the entrance and a dining room with high ceiling. I did not give high rating for romance because it is a busy dining room. The food is sensual. They use linens and provide attentive service.
On the last visit our group sampled pasta with lobster in a full flavored creamy sauce, sea bass with a delicate hoisin sauce, veal fillet with sauce and seared duck. We had three different salads: Caesar with anchovies (extra were provided on request); the house salad which has greens, sliced apple, figs, goat cheese rolled in flour and sautéed, a very pleasant and lightly applied tart dressing; a three leaf salad that was also delicious. For dessert, we were unable to have tiramisu because it was out of stock. Our limoncello parfait was lemony and very sweet. It did not have the delicacy or counterpoint of some other selections. I would have to say that I ADORE the ricotta cake. It has many dimensions, including warmth, an outer crispness, inner moist, sweet and tangy. Just like Warren's aunt used to make.
The meal was delicious as usual. Staff seemed a little harried with many faces at our sides. Reservations are recommended. Noise can climb, but, it is a happy crowd and affable chatter. The food quality makes this a good value even though it is a costly tab with three courses. We savor and save this venue for special occasions, our choice.
The only negative is that it can sometimes require ingenuity for our group to fill the plates. Among us we have dietary concerns including: vegetarian, non pork/shellfish consumption, gluten intolerance, mixing dairy and meat and more from GERD and allergies. That left me on the last occasion with very few choices. I would advise looking at the menu or call ahead for specials. I suspect that the chef would modify.
