Can I just say this place is outstanding. From the atmosphere to the service to the food and cocktails and wine list, everything was phenomenal. If you want a special evening or just really good food, this is the place to go!!

Small but exceptional menu. Offerings include small portions, great if you want an appetizer, salad and dessert. Service could not be better with knowledgeable staff for food and wine. Wine is too expensive. Charge for bread. Beautiful decor. Nice bar. Unusual but fun drinks.
