Although several restaurants are highly rated, we found this one to be the very best. It is hard to get a reservation but we managed to get in for a late lunch. The service was impeccable and the food was superb.

They don't take reservations so go when you aren't too hungry and have time to wait. It looked really inviting and had been recommended to us. It was the only restaurant that we went to that didn't take reservations.
