Food and service are consistently exceptional. Cocktails are fabulous, wine list is extensive. While it's not in the best neighborhood, it's definitely a go-to spot for us. They run hamburger specials and fish catch of the day specials if you are on their email list, which I would recommend doing. Parking is pretty easy--no meters but plenty of on-street parking on the side streets.

Excellent. Found on Trip Advisor and are we glad.
The GM (Adrian?) was on duty running a fine tuned machine.
The place is small, but, it won't matter.
Excellent dishes:
Fillet:May be one of the best ever!
Salmon: Perfect
Note: The GM also is the wine buyer and he is an expert on wine pairings and he has a basement full of wine to prove it. A wine list to rank with most any fine restaurant anywhere.
Note: reservations in advance a must.

It is a pleasure to be safely in the hands of true professionals ...The front of the house is on par with the kitchen and the diner is the winner...the only negative thing is that the tables are close together and the noise level is daunting ...wine by the glass was outstanding...four of us ordering different plates and sharing the bounty...pasta.. duck..filet..it was a real treat...Bravo!...it was pricey but in the end value beat out price by a satisfying margin.

And so pleased we did, we loved this place in 2012 and this year the food was probably even better. It is such a treat to be surrounded by great servers and receptive chefs. The lamb was so amazing and we just had to let them know. Great restaurant and well worth it's high ranking on tripadvisor
