I had dinner here with some co-workers in a private room area. It was really very good. The service was excellent and the food was good. I had a beet salad (average), ahi tuna (good) and shortribs (very good). The service was really the star. Then I had breakfast at the bar a couple of days later. The service was less exemplary at that time. Once the food was put in front of me I couldn't get my server's attention for more coffee until I was completely done with my meal. The food was very good, though (egg white omelet).
