“great tapas and entrees”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

We had reservations for 10 on a friday night and were seatted immediately. The menu seemed a little confusing but was explained by our very patient waiter. The salads and tapas were generous portions and the entrees were the perfect size. All of the food was well prepared and delicious. I had the Scallops and they were large and cooked to perfection. I would recommend the Creme Brule for desert. Yum. Every one at the table was happy with thier orders and we all walked out full and happy. The service was superb.

“Good, interesting food in historic building with low light and ambiance.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Waitstaff is well trained, steak is good, and food is consistent and current. Little sunlight during day, but at night candlelight and dark wood booths make a nice setting for romance.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Helpful hostess and server, made sure we made it to our show in time. My husband loved the Crabcake Cheesecake. So much we came back the next night. Loved the tapas. I do not eat duck, but I decided to order the duck pastrami and loved it. Our first night there the waitress was great, the second night the waiter was good, but was not personable at all. Wine was good and a fair size serving. I only regret we never saved room for the adorable desserts we saw.
