    Great place for drinks post work. The dinner menu is good but the bar menu is great. It's also very affordable. Pretty good wine selection.

    As disappointing as can be: so-so food, slow & sloppy service, barely responsive managers.
  • Gadi S.
    Overpriced, mediocre food. If you like fancy places and don't like food that much, this place is perfect.

    Don't try to order from the bar menu at a table because that's apparently not permitted. 1 of our 4 guests wanted a burger and we were denied. We ultimately walked out. Bad service, bad attitude.

    If the halibut is on the menu, don't look twice, order it. The whole wheat crepes are a savory filling vegetarian option and are also great to share.
