Food was awesome. It's loud and jam packed, so go for the food ... not quiet conversation.

“A real disappointment at a price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2008

Very pretentious and extremely overpriced. Went here with a group during a conference and though we knew it would be a pricey meal we had no idea. My friend wanted a glass of wine, but after repeatedly telling the waiter a $200 bottle of wine was not what she had in mind, she soon discovered a glass averaged $15-20. She settled for a pricey beer. The food was good, but at these prices it should have been incredible. I would not recommend this to anyone except those who might want to drop $200-300 for a meal for two if you include drinks and dessert.
