Busy place can do the job. Could be better. its a little hectic for my taste . The service is ok but they seem to always be in a rush. Food is fine gave them a 4 star because I believe we caught them on a bad day. did not want to penalize them.

Highly recommend the grilled artichoke appetizer - not something usually found on a menu. Great location, great food, great service. Do take the time to look at the restaurant itself, the tile floors, the woodwork - great attention to detail.

Restaurant front opens to the main street. Great for people watching and enjoying the city. The weather was nice for sitting out on the deck. Food was excellent, but expensive.

Nice place, friendly, attentive service, and good food. Upscale but I felt dressed well enough in the afternoon coming in from a flight. Good choice!
