My wife and I went for dinner, thought the restaurant was fairly decent, very well appointed, upscale. I think the restaurant had only been there for a short time as it wasn't busy at all. That was good for us, as we had a lot...More

Good food, service staff are very attentive, maybe overly so. The restaurant is still evolving, but really worth a try. The place is beautifully renovated. Really deserves a visit
