Rated 3 out of 5 by from The server first acted like he was unfamiliar with certificates. Employees kept moving around our plates and glasses on our table- very distracting. I ordered the Octopus app for my entree, it was over cooked and rubbery. Towards the end of us eating my water glass was empty. An employee filled the water at the table next to us and didn't bother to look at my empty water. The restaurant did give complimentary individual mousse desserts and all the employees are very nice. I really liked the worker that bussed our table and gave us new silverware. He was very sweet and would apologize when he would come to our table.Very expensive for nothing exceptional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Service and food are amazing. The chef/owner was helping prep the dining room when we arrived, seated us, leveled-off our table (was a little wobbly at first), and served our main course!
