The venue was very interesting, and the foods were fine. Although we went there for lunch, given the atmosphere and saw the Beluga gold line vodka upon entering, we couldn’t resist but to order a bottle. It was one memorable lunch.

We had a great time dining at this restaurant. All my friends liked the ambient and all the dishes served. The wine list is sufficient and we ended up choosing Italian wines. Unfortunately, we didn't try their desserts after the starters and main courses.

My wife and I just had dinner at this highly rated restaurant. Although we got off to a weak start with a mis-made martini, Tony Gear, the owner personally made my wife a fresh one that was perfect. Tony is quite a character and it...More
