    It was very loud but thankfully our table was in the best position away from the big tables. We enjoyed the night and the food.

    Food was excellent and the service sublime. The restaurant was very accommodating to our swap for the degustation menu, including with a suitable wine pairing. The Austrian red paired with the duck pancakes was a surprise yet it worked marvelously well. Perhaps the only "miss" of the evening was the dessert, which was fine but didn't really stand out.

    Absolutely fabulous. We dined last night with family for a special occasion. Everything was perfect. Will return again soon, if not for a special occasion, just spoil ourselves. ?????
