We went on a recentTuesday evening so no problems with service as one person had recently. I did make a reservation and asked for an outside table. We have learned to make a reservation if at all possible. They know you are coming and when. In France and Italy, we have seen people turned away if they do not have a reservation, even if tables are empty.
Yes, food was expensive but overall good to very good. Wine is served by the glass or bottle. Bottles are grouped by price, $30, $50 and $70. A very good idea.
3 negatives. The waitress asked repeatedly if everything was OK. Some like that, but not us. Also, when I asked for water, we were asked "filtered, fizz or still?" We said still. No mention of a cost. $6!! It was in a 800ml bottle but really! Specials: 1 app and 1 entre, beef tenderloin. Cost not given so I asked. App was in line with others. Beef was $55! Yikes. Rude to have a special double the cost of other entres.
Overall, we still liked our meal and sitting outside of a nice evening.
