An amazing upscale restaurant with a tremendous menu. I had the steak tartar, which was very good, then shrimp risotto. Service was great. Had Asian twist. Recommend for a date night.

Ate a wonderful anniversary dinner here. The food is outstanding and beautifully served. My wife had the venison and I ate fish. Desert was really good too. Wine list was a little pricey.
