I recently dined here for the first time, accompanied by a regular customer of this restaurant. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted like family, even though I had never met any of the staff before. The welcome was warm and genuine. Kudos go to the coat check lady, who made an excellent first impression! The decor is warm as well: adequately but gently lit, lots of dark wood, red tablecloths --- understated class. As for the service.... Mary has got to be one of the best waitresses I've ever encountered: knowledgeable, warm, friendly, attentive -- thank you for adding so much to the evening. Both my friend and I had a salad followed by the filet of sole, which was expertly seasoned, tender and flaky --- just right. The Beaujolais wine by the glass was simply delicious. I will be sure to return to this restaurant, and would recommend it wholeheartedly for an enjoyable, understated, classy and delicious night out.
