The restaurant is very pretty and CLEAN. My server was awesome! In fact, everyone there was very pleasant and professional. The Brussels sprouts were phenomenal, and you could tell every detail of the dish was thought through. The cheese, the lemons, the aioli, the Brussels sprouts cooked perfectly, and even the chili flakes- perfection. YUM!
