I always have a great time here. Both the service, the venue and the food is great. It is a good place for couples or friend as the dishes are served in small portions, made for sharing. The waiters always have good wine recommendations for...More

Nice location and setting. Ordered the 5 course, was driving so no alchohol. The whole five courses took 3 hours. It took longer for the waiter to explain what each course was than it took to eat it. No major complaints about the food itself...More

We chose the 4 course dinner with wine pairings and it was amazing and more than enough food to satiate the biggest appetite. The salmon was buttery, the cod was the best I’ve ever had, the duck was beautifully done (and quite rich) and the...More

Wonderful food, good service, great atmosphere. Loved it. You choose 3 or more dishes per person and it comes out one by one. Great imaginative food. Gluten aware and helpful. Great 1946 desert wine. Lovely red wine (albeit served far far too cold).

I took my wife for her birthday for fine dining. We're both vegans so we didn't expect a lot from a place that doesn't announce itself as a vegan place. But we were in for a treat, we had a 5 course vegan dinner, and...More
