Went here for a Christmas lunch. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Atmosphere is a step back to a more elegant and laid back time. Service was excellent. They only serve lunch during December and their reservations fill up quickly.

The place has a nice atmosphere and good food. Prices are somewhat high. This is a place that has a quiet subdued atmosphere and a place to have a special dining experience.
