Very good food for the most part. Also very pricey! For that price everything should be amazing. A few things were not impressive. Portions are also very small so you have to order multiple things from the menu to make a full meal.

I'm sure it changes regularly, so even if I were to look that up for you, it would likely be different by the time you went. Best option would be to call them, as they are very responsive.

While we were there, the patrons mostly wore business casual. There were many tables with the diners in suits and more upscale wear. Therefore, you would be comfortable in either depending on your taste and the occasion.
