I wasn't super excited about this place because I usually like simpler food (my wife calls me picky), and the words "Euro" and "Bistro" usually don't mean good ole meat and potatoes. But I was pleasantly surprised that in addition to the dishes you might...More

Service was outstanding. I do think the food is overpriced, for what you get. I had the angel hair pomodoro with shrimp. The Shrimp were rubbery. Nothing special about the spicing either. The Chocolate Souffle for dessert was great.
