Do make reservations, as many people know how great this restaurant is. Don't be concerned about the location on a busy street and right next to a liquor store. Inside, the mood is tranquil and happy with an excellent dining experience. The gravlax appetizer with prosciutto and anchovies was exceptionally well prepared and delicious. The lobster risotto had many large pieces of lobster and was delicately sauced. The lamb chops were perfect as was the veal tenderloin. Our desserts of Baked Alaska, lemon mousse with candied lemon and apple crostata were all wonderful (my favorite was actually the lemon, although the Baked Alaska was delicious and beautiful). Highly recommended!
