Real little tapas but pricy. We have been here several times with friends this was our first solo and we would definitely go again.

I've walked past this restaurant numerous times and often wondered what it's all about...small plates ? We made a reservation of 6:00 this past Wednesday. We really enjoyed our evening although in hindsight I feel perhaps I'd have been better going with my sister or girlfriend ....ill explain .... The menu is limited which is great for making decisions ....... More

Love this Restaurant, the service and chef's are amazing. Love the small plate idea we got to try many dishes during our meal. It is great to meet over drinks and snacks as well

Small intimate room, perfect for couples or individuals as they have bar seating. Tapas style menu. Fabulous inspirational food served with pride(just watch the chef) Stuffed chicken wings are spectacular! The short rib with wild mushroom lasagna is out of this world. Great welcoming service. Can't get much better!

The tapas style is ideal for sharing. The menu is ever changing with lots of local wines. I always am pleased with my experience!

The food was really nice but the fact that the resto menu didn't reflect the online menu was a bit of a disappointment. I was really wanting foie gras and didn't get it... That being said, the food and service were great. Plates were brought at a nice pace. All meats, both land and sea, were succulent and perfectly cooked... More

I'm pretty hard on restaurants in my home town, I'm the first to admit but there is a very good reason behind it. Dated, pretentious and lack of effort are a few reasons. Of all the places I've ever spent money in, this one takes the cake for being the biggest disappointment. My dentist's office had more thought put into... More

I made a reservation because this restaurant had a score of 4.8 out of 5. I am giving it a 5. The food was fabulous and the service excellent. We really enjoyed our time there. It is a little pricey but worth it.
