Food was very good except for an overuse of sauces on most things. This took away from the produce which was good quality. Service was great and atmosphere enjoyable

We requested the counter to watch the chefs and we were completely ignored by the chefs when I commented on how clever they were. No eye contact or smile during the entire service. Rude! The staff on the floor were all over the place, no focus. They need to be trained on the order of service. We were asked if we wanted dessert before we had been served our last main course. Wine service was sloppy had to ask for a top up. Sorry, really disappointed as we were really looking forward to a great experience.
