Enjoyed the atmosphere of Midtown food was terrific. Had grilled Halibut cooked perfectly . My wife ordered the steak filet which she said was one of the best steak she had. Prices are high but it was Valentine’s Day we really enjoyed our meal.

Stopped in here to grab a bite and watch the opening ceremony of the Olympics. The oysters were fresh and delicious. Our dinner (salads and ceviche) were wonderful. The drink are great. The waitstaff was friendly and made awesome recommendations. Would definitely return here!!

The staff were super friendly and very accommodating when I was there. I can't imagine that they would not meet your request. Although I do agree with others that it may not be the most "kid friendly" place. I'm a big fan of... More
