We like this place. The rush seems to take place after work but settles nicely by 7:30 or so. We stopped by on a Thursday evening and consistent with previous visits, excellent service and great food.

Dropped in for a drink and late dinner. The lounge itself is very welcoming and has a great look. Our server came over shortly after we were seated, and she looked after us very well while we were there. We each ordered the Pilsner Urquell...More
