Top quality for starters and main dishes. All came as ordered and presented well. Wine selection is good too. Service is efficient, quite impersonal though. A smile always helps! Good place for business meals, at high prices though.

Came here for breakfast on the weekend whilst staying at the Renaissance. The selection is fairly small, but some tasty smoked fish and ham, and decent coffee. The fruit selection was nothing too special though, and the scrambled eggs weren't so good.

This restaurant specializes in USA and regional cuisine. If you find yourself eating here order one of the local dishes. I ordered the salmon steak which had NOT been deboned before cooking. I was told it was always prepared this way. Salmon should always be deboned before cooking. After 15 minutes I had a bread plate filled with bones and... More

Lovely place for a romantic date. The service and food are excellent. The Fish tartar and Oriental tartar starters are particularly good. Would highly recommend them. The place was quiet and not crowded at all.

we were on a Thursday evening for dinner, not many people in the restaurant so the service guys had an easy evening with us and served us excellent, the kitchen is very modern and good. They have special dishes like the bone marrow with lobster, try it if you dare, it's excellent as an appetizer ;-)

We came for lunch before the official opening time. Still got excellent service and recommendations about the various menus. We have not had too much time so the kitchen hurried up and we have been able to finish our excellent meal just in time as promised upfront by the waiter - what a positive surprise!

I am going there very often and I am always amazed about the quality of the food and the great service. Steaks are amazing and you can pimp them up the way you prefer. They always recommend you great wines and the restaurant itself is very inviting. When nice weather, the place offers a great outisde terrace. LOVE IT!!
