This place is great and actually not quite as expensive as some other restaurants in the city and it's well worth every penny, and I look forward to going back. It's not the most romantic restaurant I've ever been to, but the service is impeccable. Great for Sunday Brunch!

Very, very special event dining with impeccable service. But we were the youngest people in there by 30 years.

One of the best restaurants in a city of great restaurants. Stuffy and expensive, but sometimes that's what you have to do for great food.
