The best way for us to give you the lowdown on this place is to explain that it's really two different experiences: the bar, and the dining room. One is a three course, prixe fixe fine dining experience, the other sleek, more relaxed, often features some Action at the Bar. If you're going, go big and eat in the dining room.
