Ambitious restaurant. Friendly, professional service. Modern styled interior with brick walls. Large dining room, when we had dinner there were few guests but when it is full I can imagine the place is rather noisy. Also, we were surprised that, with so few guests, the...More

A serious food and wine establishment. Superb cooking and fine wine list, in gracious surroundings. I was fortunate to be there during the annual offal festival, and had wonderful chicken liver parfait with port-soaked figs and equally delicious sweetbreads with mushrooms, capers and chives.
