Really good food, lots of noise, great service. Small plates, reservation recommended. Really delicious food. I had the Josef menu which changes but I think it was 6 small plates. Great wine list also. Definitely worth it.

I loved the selection of small plates that made one perfect dinner. I had three savory plates in total, and each one was very special and tasty. This place is great if you like to taste variety of dishes.
