The menu is something to see, from small tapas-like dishes to larger meals. They all sound delicious on the menu - too many to select from. So, with the direction of our waiter and the bartender (from earlier), all four of us selected something different....More

Have passed on this place several times, but we decided to try it. It was a really bad experience all around. The seating inside is more than cozy, it’s awkward as your more or less sharing tables that are awkwardly split just enough for one...More

This place was amazing. Had wonder drinks and ordered the Chicken main dish as well as the Ribeye dish as well. Would definitely come back again. Make reservations as it’s very popular.
