They have a unique menu cooked correctly. Their service is great and a terrific atmosphere. Have already made reservations for New Years. Terrific rack of lamb.

Nicely decorated, very fresh ingredients in an eclectic selection of entrees. Guacamole was delicious. I suggest the wild mushroom enchiladas! Note: parking in the area is limited
