Came here for dinner late with a colleague on a business trip after reading some reviews and it was just OK. Really good location but the food was nothing extraordinary, and I would actually say it’s average. We arrived at 8:30 and were told twice...More

Went there for dinner, and had the steak frites and a cocktail Both were recommended by our server Randi(?). Both were excellent. Was a little loud but still and enjoyable time. I would go back.
