I had dinner there last night with a friend and the atmosphere and food were excellent. It was busy but still great for conversation. The lighting was soft, but you could still read the menu. Great service

Great food, great service, great ambiance, but why play big band/jazz/swing music at an irritating level. Completely spoils the experience. Reluctant to go again or recommend what could be a great restaurant.
