Had a business dinner here. Food was fantastic. Our waitress recommended the apps and the entrees. Really can't knock it for anything. Neat old building. Small bar at the back. All in all a very good experience.

I have loved the style, the service, the food, and the whole thing about this restaurant since it was a little wine bar in a mall. And that was from the the late 1980s. That is how consistently good this place is.
