Original menu items, well executed. Nice ambiance. Steak was excellent, so was the tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwich.

Nice atmosphere. Good food. Very good service. The Kobe burger was very tasty and cook very well. Hard to find. Very small street sign. Pay careful attention to the address.
