We were so pleased with this restaurant that we dined here twice. My favourite dish was one you rarely find in the UK - roast bone marrow - not to every taste but delicious. The menu goes way beyond the usual 'steak and chicken' offerings...More

My fiancé picked this place for a business meeting I had and it did not disappoint. Food, atmosphere and service were great. Very relaxed atmosphere and had a great time interacting with our vendors.

A very relaxing dinner with attentive, but not overly so, service. We loved the steak (add foie gras - it was so good!). The scallops were very fresh with excellent texture. We will be coming back!

Took the in-laws here for brunch. The food and service left a favorable impression. The added benefit of a dog friendly environment made our dining with a service animal very pleasant...no fuss...in fact very accessible!

While the food was very good, the service was incredibly slow. With a business group of 24, we only had one server who also was waiting on at least one other table. The table was situated such that it was very tight seating. If you...More

Yes 15-35 is right but we had 25-35 dinners and they were awesome. Food there is outstanding and salads are best I ever had.
