Met up with friends for drinks, Interior decor was different. the high ceilings made for an interesting experience. The staff was courteous and there was a reasonable selection of top shelf scotch.

My daughter always wants to eat here for the steak bites appetizer. I love the Mediterranean tilapia. Delicious with a salad. Deserts are delicious with a very good variety of yummy larouche cakes. Good service.
