Had an enjoyable lunch with friends- the 3-course set lunch was very good value at $39.90, with supplement charge applied for several options. Dishes were well presented, Service was attentive, but somewhat too eager, interrupting conversation a few times to ask/tell us something. Note that parking is not redeemable, and can get expensive for a long lunch.
The 6 course degustation menu with 4 paired wines was superb. Virtually every morsel was delicious. It's a great place to go for a special romantic dinner or to linger over excellent courses with foodie friends.
Food was good. Service impeccable Except that there was a bit too much Thai influence in the food served Would prefer a more Spanish flair
