We visited JUST for our anniversary dinner. We had half priced drinks and appetizers at the bar since it was mid week. The entire appetizer menu is half price and select drinks. We followed up with dinner having sea bass and soft shell crab. The food was great and nicely presented. The manager came by several times and asked how everything was. Service staff was always present and courteous. Overall a pricey restaurant, but if you are looking for a special occasion place or just want an overall nice place with great food, you won't be disappointed.

Wow! Wow! Wow!
JUST finished dinner. We took friends for a special birthday, and we had a great experience. The decor is lovely. For starters two of us had the kale salad - terrific. One had the sweet potato ravioli - great. One had the Caesar salad - excellent. Everyone had different main course - all wonderful. Two desserts - yummy! I have one negative - the waiter cleared appetizer plates before everyone at the table was finished. A huge no-no.
2 bottles of wine; delicious, and reasonably priced and gone....We liked it so well we asked the manager to make a reservation for us for next Saturday night. Another special birthday. I already know what I am ordering.

I saw a Groupon for this restaurant and after reading all the good reviews, decided to purchase it. I let them know we had the groupon to make sure we followed the guidelines. They told us we couldnt use it with any other discount. Ok, fine. We asked if we could sit at the bar and use the voucher towards our dinner. They agreed that we could ..until the check came. Now they said, since we ordered drinks during happy hour we could not use it towards our dinner. This may have been a misunderstanding, but left a bad vibe for us. They wouldnt honor it. The food was decent but the portions were small and on the pricey side being its location is a gas station parking lot. I called Groupon and they credited our account since we would not be returning.

Dined on May 18, 2013. My wife and I have dined in some of the finest restaurants in the world. Just is up their with the Ritz in Paris, Villa D'Este on Lake Como, Four Seasons in Manhattan, and the Hassler Hotel in Rome. The servers were pleasant and efficient and very attentive to our needs. The manager, Marat Mesh was on hands and engaged diners at the right times and with an appropriate flare, conversation and timely for privacy. The food was to order and of high quality. Our dishes were perfectly prepared, extremely tasty and in portions for gourmet not gourmand diners. If your desire is amount of food, go to a chain restaurant. Our choices were very pleasingly plating creating a visual prelude to the tasteful dishes.

We will return and recommend it to others who know the proper match of atmosphere, food quality and presentation and deserved service.
