This is our second visit to this fabulous restaurant. Our server, Lara, guided us through a wonderful meal--with every bite of every course just wonderful. We'll be returning here on a monthly basis. It's a great place!

The three of us enjoyed a fabulous meal with great service from Elliot. The foie gras royale is a wonderful, 5-star dish, the pike quenelle is delicious, the sturgeon exquisite, and the egg dumplings nuanced and very tasty. We'll be back--frequently!

The setting is nice though noisy. Drinks were pretty pricey (9 to $11 for a glass of wine) and none of my party ordered any because of this. The menu is small with 4 entree but very creative. Prices were 20 to $36. This is...More

A repeat of our previous dining experience here -- pretty much perfect. Excellent service and really excellent food prepared by people who know what they are doing. And the prices are reasonable.
