Dined here on a business dinner with a large group (11). All attendees were very pleased with the food and the atmosphere. I tried several items include the roasted beet salad, charred octopus (which was fantastic), ricotta cavatelli and the crime brule. Everything was wonderful.

Top notch all the way around! Excellent service, food and ambiance. What a special place to go for a birthday. Jaw-dropping foie gras with charred cherries, and the osobucco entree is exceptional!
