I like coming here for brunch. They have some great German food and they get good musicians to come play. Nice way to spend a Saturday! Also bottomless mimosas. I ordered the Kaiserschmarren and I will again next time!

The mashup of modern and traditional here continues to delight me. Even what are considered "heavy" traditional dishes are lighter and brighter.

My husband and I celebrated my birthday at this fine restaurant. Every course that we had was delicious. I had the Bouillabaise and he had the pork cheeks. We will go back.

I am sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your meal and billing? Is there anything I can do? We are trying to have a variety of price points on our menu so there is a choice for our customers.
