We selected this restaurant because of Trip Advisor reviews. It lived up to the reviews. We got a reservation with an hour's notice, did not have to wait for a table and the food was terrific. We split meals and this was done with great style. Value received.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

We chose this restaurant for my birthday dinner because it was the night before we departed and it was close to our hotel (the JW). We ended up walking over. It was packed on a Monday night which was our first clue it would be delicious. We each had a wonderful salad (the special), yummy entrees and cocktails and a complimentary desert (I had mentioned the birthday when making the reservation). Service was very pleasant; could not have asked for a better experience.

“Great lamb shank”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Very nice quiet restaurant, older crowd. Beet and date salad a must have if you like either. Flat iron steak a bit on the chewy side. Service was excellent.

“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

I went to a vendor sponspored dinner party with about 12-15 people here. We had a private dining area, which was very nice. The appetizers were so delicious I almost couldn't eat dinner. I had a steak and it was excellent. The service also was excellent. Their food was upscale, but a little different than restaurants like Mortons. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had dinner for the first time on February 20 and I will be back. Dined alone and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Menu selections were great and I enjoyed my lite supper very much. I will be back
