I had never been to the previous location so I don't have anything to compare to. Valet is available but there's also free parking on the streets adjacent to Broadway.

Some girlfriends and I came in on a regular night. Main entrance is through the bar on one side, and there's a large private room on the other side with a separate entrance.

It's quite dim but not terrible - i.e. you can still read your menu. Nice single bathrooms and the seating is comfortable - I liked our table that was part chairs and part curved booth.

The menu is quite small but the food quality was decent. It's not one of my favorite places in town but it's a nicer upscale place with a mixed crowd. The bread service is excellent - mix of fresh foccacia and regular white with oil/vinegar- loved the foccacia... I definitely got my share of carbs!

Had the beef carpaccio to start - lovely. Very thinly sliced and topped with fresh parmesan and herbs. My only complaint is that I thought they overdid it with the cheese... I actually scraped some of it off! Otherwise great tastes and textures. Would order this again. It went well with the bread.

Had the sablefish main.. this was only OK. I love sablefish and they did a nice job in keeping the buttery smooth texture, but the fish was lacking some flavor. The mushrooms were totally bland on the side.

We all ordered different desserts to share. Dessert portions were huge, especially the tiramisu. Sampled their tiramisu, ice cream, trifle, another dish with wafers and berries. Desserts were average.

Nice consistent service throughout the evening. Shared a bottle of wine at the table. Dinner ran about $60pp withiout drinks... probably closer to $80 pp with the alcohol. Overall average for its price range. Decent place to go out for a nice dinner if you want to stay out of downtown.
