I have loved the food, and the restaurant is incredibly popular, but the noise level at night makes conversations IMPOSSIBLE. (somewhat better at lunch, and way better in the morning). So many hard surfaces so the noise of diners + music is not absorbed anywhere...More

Went as a party of 6 on July 4th. Food and service were excellent. We shared several appetizers and had steak, sea trout and pasta as our entrees. Nice wine. Our only complaint is the noise level. It’s a small place and it was full,...More

We came and the place was totally empty, the only reason why was the fact, that they were only opening in about 10 minutes 😊 This place was fully overcrowded within 30 minutes, which made it bit noisy, but ok. Food was delicious and service...More

We came in for a late dinner on a Friday night. The wait was about an hour however the hostess recommend a bar close by for a drink while we waited, she would call when they are ready for us. Well worth the wait. We...More

It would be hard to imagine a nicer, cozier more pleasant setting. It felt like we were in the middle of a movie art director's sketch book Food was delicious. Salads, pasta, chicken and fish all perfect. Cute cocktails, solid wine list. Not a single...More
