I brought my girlfriend here on a whim last week. We both agreed we would be back many times. It is a very intimate setting, perfect for a couple or maybe a small group. The food was like nothing we'd ever had -- very original and full of amazing flavors. Even the cocktails were new and delicious -- kumkwat, meyer lemon, cilantro, etc. Everything was perfectly portioned, and our waitress was the perfect combination of informative and hands-off. She explained a lot about the food and made recommendations, but would leave us alone to enjoy the whole experience. Perfect.

This is the place to go for a romantic and delicious dinner. I'm not sure I'd want to be here with a group, but cozy, dark suede booths that are tucked away in their own little niches make for an intimate setting for a romantic dinner. Dark walls and candlelight reflected through mosaic candleholders don't hurt either! Little luxurious touches like cucumber water and rosewater to wash your hands add to the atmosphere. I highly recommend going for the tasting menu and have them do wine pairings with it, or go with their wines by the glass. We had a fantastic Riesling there. I've also heard nothing but raves about their cocktail menu. As far as food ahhhh the food. I can't wait to go back. Dishes of note: Appetizers: the lima beam appetizer (the only time in my life I've loved lima beans), the trio of spreads Mains: I've heard good things about the kefta skewers and the couscous Aziza. I personally can vouch for the lamb with charred eggplant. I didn't care for the sundried tomatoes with this, but the lamb was delicious - tender and rich. Definitely worth it for a splurge dinner that won't completely break the bank but will definitely make you feel like you dined in style. P.S. Use some of the money you save to take a cab back and forth, especially if you're doing a full win pairing!
