OK - we first sampled this restaurant via the Sunday bar, which really, really let down the reputation of the restaurant. In fact, we haven't even tried the restaurant based on the appalling experience from the bar menu. Truly great concept for a burger bar,...More

I'm rating this restaurant "Excellent" based on its merits compared to similar establishments offering upscale "fine" dining. For lunch, we shared the Hot Spinach Dip with Wonton Chips which was very good! The wife had the Garlic Butter Shrimp which was good, but would have...More
