The Food and Drinks
Think food indulgence. Clean and simple presentation with wholesome Mediterranean flavor. All dishes are cooked in olive oil and you’ll be served 3 types of olive oil from different regions with the bread. From the bread to the dessert everything was superb.

We were greeted nicely and even though I arrived 10 minutes late we were seated promptly. I was glad because there was line of walk-ins hoping for a table. Our food came timely, empty plates removed promptly, silverware replaced and water refilled. Everything was impeccable.
Our waiter was great and very attentive. I asked for my filet mignon medium-well however it came out well-done. I mentioned this to my friend and the waiter who happen to be nearby must have overheard because seconds later he came by to offer to replace it. This was honestly fantastic service because I didn’t have to ask, he came to me which eliminates the awkwardness. I didn’t want to wait so I didn’t send it back.
Candle lit, romantic and sophisticated. Request a seat upstairs or the back of the room.
