      Underwhelming and overpriced!

      I concur. Stay upstairs and enjoy rather remarkable cocktails. Food is OK but essentially only OK.

        I have to say I like this place. Cool atmosphere both upstairs in the lounge AND downstairs in restaurant, and I thought the food was quite good. yes, a little pricey, but yummy drinks and excellent service. I went there for a birthday dinner with a guest who has a very severe nut allergy - we were concerned and told the restaurant in advance and they could not have been more helpful, going so far as to prepare a special menu for the allergic guest and coming around to check on him (and tell him which of the other dishes we ordered he could and could not taste) frequently throughout the meal. They had a great sliced beef salad, as I remember.
