Calm, collected, high quality modern cuisine dining. It's Italian inspired. Definitely a special occasion place and call ahead and let them know about dietary restrictions. I enjoyed the experience quite a bit. GooglePlace - September 2017

This restaurant is outstanding in every aspect. The food is delicious, locally sourced and meticulously crafted - then presented to you by the chef who made each course. Excellent service and wine selection- sit at the kitchen counter for a real experience! GooglePlace - July 2017

Had a great experience here! Sitting at the counter really added to it, being able to watch the food prep and chat with the chef & other assistants throughout the evening. Food was excellent-around 7-8 courses depending on what you consider a course but can say by end of the meal, you are full! Menu options change periodically based on seasonal availability & are things most people would never have access or skill to prepare at home. In my opinion, it's a great place for special occasions, as it is not cheap & depending on any add-ins you get or drink options, it only ramps up quickly from there! Place was well run, with short waits between courses, but just be aware, from time you arrive to time you depart will take 3 hours and possibly a little longer. Parking options are limited, but street parking is free after 8 p.m., assuming you can find a space. GooglePlace - July 2017

Dropped by for the full tasting menu. I mentioned beforehand that my wife was allergic to a few items, they forgot on one of the first dishes. We reminded them, it happened again. While the server should have caught this, he was otherwise pretty friendly. The food was really great, but honestly every dish tasted a little bit like the previous dish and I didnt get as much variety as I would've hoped for in a tasting menu. I wouldn't order the tasting menu again due to the "flavor fatigue" I experienced, but getting 2-3 dishes would be fine. Nice place, certainly a fantastic date spot but for a $150/person price tag I was hoping to brag about this place to all my friends and that didn't happen. GooglePlace - July 2017

Quietly and unpretentiously wonderful. Me and my girlfriend came here for her birthday. I chose the establishment, having not looked carefully at the prices. Suffice it to say that we paid more than half of our rent. While it was a bit of a mistake in that regard, it was not in any other. I do not have the qualifications to review the food in any meaningful way, but we both enjoyed it to a high degree. While it's the most I've ever paid for food, it was also the best food I've ever had in my 25 years by a good margin. The theatrical presentation added to the experience--one of our small courses arrived covered in a glass orb filled with smoke, shrouding and seasoning the dish. My only regret is that I could not afford to tip more, as the wait staff was as good (or better than) the food. We will return here in the future. GooglePlace - April 2017
