The food is expensive. It is good, but it’s definitely over priced. I looked up the menu online but didn’t realize I was looking at the appetizers and not the entree menu. The atmosphere is nice and our waiter was lovely.

The food is good but the service is better. If I had to guess I would say that the chef has something to prove. I would like to suggest that less is more. It it simple and deliver on simple but good.

You need to make reservations earlier than a week ahead especially if you have more than two people. I would look at the menu in terms of gluten free, it says exactly what they have.
