But it doesn't look like much, tucked into the end of a strip mall/office building. I noticed really good reviews on Yelp and we're very happy we finally tried it. It's not cheap, but the level of service, the surroundings, the food, cocktails, etc are a solid match for the price range. Nice selection on the menu, a good variety of choices, and everything we had was top notch. The cocktail I had was tasty and they have a nice wine list. Dinner was $ 130 before tip (1 cocktail, 1 glass of wine, 2 starters, 2 entrees, shared dessert and 2 coffees) which isn't something we can do every weekend, but I'd call it very reasonable for the experience we enjoyed there. —DottieHoffmann

Charred octopus and baked beet appetizers were very good, as was the black pepper cavatelli entree. The lamb and broccoli was really too salty - the oyster sauce would have gained from a lighter touch, and adding a portion of the lamb cured as a bacon pushed the salt even further. On the other hand the roasted lamb loin was excellent, and the vegetables were fine once one got past the sauce. So while not perfect the evening was quite enjoyable, and it's good to have another interesting place to consider for special occasions. —markjackson

Majority of the food there is outstanding and more than well prepared. At times the octopus is hit/miss. —nightlifecher
