The steaks and pasta are good. The sausage bread appetizer was a hit at our table. Although the bar is busy each night, the restaurant seldom is. Its a good quiet place where you can actually talk as you eat.

We were there for cocktails and appetizers. The service was fine. Food was just ok. However, it's disconcerting when the bartender is being given instructions on how to make drinks as the customers are sitting there waiting to imbibe.
