I went here for my birthday and was visibly impressed by the staff and their knowledge and ease of interaction with the customers. The food was absolutely divine and I would highly recommend the baby kale anchovy salad. Also take a walk around the gardens!

The ambiance was right. The wine selection was excellent, a recommendation of the waiter. The entree - a pan fried salmon was a tad too skimpy. But a cheese tray for dessert made up for it. Excellent waitstaff.
