We've eaten here several times. Drinks are always excellent. They only use top shelf liquor. Service is always great. Staff is knowledgeable and attentive but not overly attentive. We are generally disappointed in beef entrees. Flavor is really good but meat tends to be tough.

This is an odd restaurant. It’s like it doesn’t know what it wants to be. We were seated at a high top table in the bar area. For entrees that range $25-$40, this was a bit of a turnoff, but whatever. The food was good,...More
