Superb food, beautiful presentation. The service was very good. I was lucky to get there during happy hour, before the dinner crush. Outdoor seating was comfortable and welcome on a hot day.

I looked on their website and it says they are open from 4:30-9:30. I don't think they open for lunch, sorry.
