    Reservations are recommended, but they reserve some space for walk-ins (mostly just the two bar areas). The fire bar is cozy and allows you to watch the chefs do their thing.

    Fine dining at moderate price. Some hit and miss dishes, but do try the cannelloni stuffed with pulled braised lamb. Great mixed drinks. Small plates $9-$15. Entrees $12-$28. "More Info" for review: Read more

    Let me preface by saying salt isn't a spice it's a mineral. This place makes delicious food though flavors please ones taste buds while the presentation is picture worthy. Nice job im quite impressed
