Don't waste your time. Service is not strong . Food is good if you don't mind puttingg in your order and not seeing anyone for an hour. Not hospitable at all. Can't believe it's still open

Has never encountered such nasty, disinterested staff anywhere else - disappointing as we were looking forward to a great experience. Ended up leaving the place without being served. Needless to say we will not return.

This is a great place that would have a three month waiting list if it were in Manhattan. If you came across this place in Paris, you would be happy. Fine food prepared by a very well trained chef. BYOB.
