Small but superb Restaurant - part of the Lancaster Hotel. Attentive and discreet service, with a varied and tasty menu VERY well prepared. Menu changes each time we have visited. Lamb chops and Fish preparations are awesome - we will definitely be going back for special occasions. Be prepared to be held up or just take your time when the downtown theatre patrons are eating prior to catching their show - book ahead to avoid disappointment.

Biggest draw was proximity to theaters. Food very good but menu somewhat limited. Nice room. Perfunctory service. Overpriced. Valet parking $8, though you could leave car during theater performance.

The dinner was delicious, it was a good start to a night out for the symphony. Our table ordered the filets and the crab cakes. Both dishes were very good. We had the calamari for an appetizer and it was good with the spicy dip. The waiters were very friendly when they did appear at the table but I think we must have sat at our table for at least 10 minutes before anyone came and took our drink orders. They seemed to dissapear for long periods of time.
