The ambiance was delightful for my wife's birthday dinner and we both really enjoyed the meal. Only had a main each as we'd had snacks beforehand. Wine list was adequate and prices reasonable for an upper class of establishment. Most pleasant.

We had a dinner here. Lovely restaurant, good a.m.bience. The Boeuf was not as tender as expected. The Goat Feta Soufflés were nice but not hot enough.
