I visit every month for drinks and dinner. Steaks are good and it’s higher end in terms of seating, staff and bar area. It’s great for business and the outside area is nice in the summer. Good selection of cocktails; less good for beer.

Can go either way. You can you dress up or down and you wouldn't be out of place either way.

I was part of a corporate event with approximately 40 attendees so I’m sure they are able to handle an additional 10-30.
