Food at this restaurant is good. However they are one of the few restaurants that serve only red but no white house wine. The cost of the wines are prohibitive. The restaurant is small and the booths are hard to get into.

The atmosphere is great and the staff are friendly and professional. I found the food somewhat wanting in terms of being flavourful and interesting but the people I dined with were pleased with their meals.
