Great date night spot for small plates and cocktails. They have a happy hour food menu from 5-7pm every night (you may have to ask for the happy hour menu). They also make a great dirty martini.

For high-end dining, you cannot go wrong here. Our favorite night to go is Sundays when they do their "Beggars can't be choosers" menu. The menu indicates you pick seafood, meat, veggies, dessert, cocktails, beer or wine. Past that, you have no idea what you'll receive and you can't make suggestions or modifications. Super fun dining experience for those who are adventurous with no dietary restrictions. Pro tip: when doing "beggars can't be choosers" go right at 5pm when the doors open as spots are limited to the bar.
