This is not your typical hotel restaurant; it's World class food in a uniquely open space.

Wish some dinner items were available at lunch.

This restaurant was elegant, quiet and refined. The service was impeccable and the food was superb. There was no dress code, although I think the atmosphere calls for more than just jeans and tee-shirts. This is a restaurant that is perfect for a romantic dinner or a business dinner. The room was very cold, and we complained to the maitre d. He explained to us that since it is a large room with a very high ceiling, they couldn't adjust the temperature. However, he brought us shawls to wear instead. A very nice touch!!

This is not bargain dining. $27.00 for roasted chicken is pricey. However, there was an amuse-bouche to begin the meal, and at the end of the meal we were given miniature carrot cakes and chocolate candies. To me it is a special occasion dinner, but I would definitely return.

Wow. Great atmosphere. Impeccable service. Exciting food. How often can you go out these days for fine dining where you can talk without shouting? Yes the hippie gen is aging and we still wear jeans, but isn't it nice to get get great food in a beautiful room with live music without a coat and tie.
The food was superb and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
