This restaurant is very sterile and very, very disappointing. The windows are cloudy and failed so even if there is supposed to be a view you cannot see out, the food is bland and over priced for supposedly being a gourmet restaurant.

Stopped in far a couples of drinks. Nothing particularly amazing about the place except really, really nice staff. The place is older and needs some updating. Might try for dinner sometime.
