We attended for New year's and had a very nice four course dinner. The dinner was pricey but had great service and food. I would highly recommend making a reservation as there can be a wait in the evening. In addition it was way way cheaper to purchase a bottle of wine than to buy individual glasses. Overall I had a great experience here. The reasoning for 4/5 stars is because for the price of dinner (being well over $100 per person) we should of been allowed access to the rooftop area without paying the additional $50 entry fee.

Great atmosphere! Went there during happy hour and it was great. The happy hour appetizer specials were delicious, especially the mac n cheese. We also got some pork belly i think and spring rolls. The rooftop place is very modern and warm. Good way to spend the afternoon looking over the city. Would recommend to anybody.

Definitely a nice classy place. Food is definitely in the pricier side but it's good. Portions are a bit small but that's the style for these more expensive eateries. Atmosphere is pretty chill. For nights and weekends the 2nd floor bar is a pretty filled spot with beautiful people.
