Stumbled by this place while looking for a late night meal. They were surprisingly open and once we noticed all the zagat ratings we decided to give it a try. The service was good from the start. I wasn't really impressed by the menu but once the server named all of the specials I became more interested. We tried the striped bass, which was excellent and the seafood pasta, which was good. I like that it is BYOB also.
What I didn't like was that it was cash only and I found the outdoor seating on the sidewalk a bit akward. The seating arrangement is way too close together and the chairs are old and difficult to maneuver. I agree with a previous reviewer about the meal being quick. Therefore I would only return if I was looking to eat great food but in a rush. This is the perfect spot to hit up prior to a night out on the town when your time is limited.
