Open Table VIP, Apotheosis, - July 20th, 2013... This is a truly enjoyable restaurant to go to. The appetizers are very good, as are the salds and entre's. The original table reserved was near the front , but the hostess did not hesitate to show us to another , better table the moment we asked. The folk singer on Saturday night was an added bonus.
Citysearch Reviewer, Mike Labella - March 16th, 2013 Great place! – We decided to try this restaurant out for our 2 year anniversary. My husband called to make reservations (FYI, I found all this out later). He asked if they could put a rose on the table (he didn't know all the tables had roses in a vase - but they made ours special - they a long stem rose ON the table) , to have the best table in the house, and to have a champagne toast with dessert. They fulfilled ALL of his wishes and made our night sooo special.
