Great food, cool atmosphere. Great staff. Cigar room, if you choose. A little expensive but worth it for a special night or if you are single and wanting to find that special someone at their bar and pool room. My husband and I enjoyed it!

Very nice restaurant. Fresh, clean layout with multiple seating options. Large bar area with plenty of table seating available. The food was good and priced typically for the area.

Had dinner there with a friend who live in the DFW area. The food was AMAZING, but the service, while very good, was a little to attenuative for my liking. While the prices are high, the food is well worth it.
