Normally an excellent restaurant, but this time, because of an event in the main dining room, the filet mignon was medium instead of the requested medium rare, though everything else was as usual superb in the enclosed outdoor room, or patio room. The parking lot offered only valet parking for the outrageous price of $15 and Open Table was at fault for this: it should not have accepted a reservation on the day of an event or else cautioned the person making the reservation as the restaurant itself would have done if the reservation had been made directly.

Lovely room. Nice wine list with some natural low intervention options. Good ingredients. Slightly under seasoned at times. Good for groups.

We went for lunch. The food is really good but SMALL portions and therefore expensive for what you get. Also the service was interminably slow despite very few people being at the restaurant.

Found this restaurant on OpenTable and happy with our choice. Not that easy to find (Google Maps send you to the wrong street) so had to phone them and a very nice young lady helped us find them. Sort of "Italian Tapas" but portions plenty big enough for us!

Food just wasn’t up to expectation. No textures in the food although we ordered quite a variety as they are small plates. We were quite disappointed as friends had shared that it was a great place. Based on our dining experience we would not go back.

We had a wonderful lunch, the guy who served us was brilliant, offered us excellent recommendations and was the right level of attentive. Food was excellent, food combinations that I have never tried which were not just inventive but delicious. It has a great vibe, decor, music and set up - really couldn't fault it and would definitely recommend to to everyone!

The food is very inventive here. You sit at long tables with other people - we sat in a corner of the table and were a bit cold as it is a very big room to heat. Very reasonably priced and a good wine list. Would definitely recommend but if you go in the winter try and sit nearer the ceiling heater!
