This restaurant is perfect for a first date. The wine list is extensive and the staff is really interested in helping you find something you like without trying to up charge. That being said, they still have pretty pricey wine. Every single bottle on their menu you can get by the glass, even the $500 dollar bottles. They have an air filtration system that keeps the wines fresh without letting the oxygen touch them. This information was all given to me by a very friendly and helpful waiter.
On to the atmosphere. This restaurant is very urban chic. It has exposed ceilings but the booths are actually plush couches that feels like you are lounging on them. The lighting is perfect. Dark enough to be intimate but light enough to see what you're eating.
On to the food. Our food was delicious. I tried the Orecchiette pasta. Now it takes something special for me to like a dish if it contains onions. This one did. And it was so worth me picking through them. I even took what I couldn't eat home. My boyfriend got the short rib ravioli which was awesome, and we decided we'd agree to disagree on who's was better.
The single complaint I had was that the bread came out cold and not fresh baked. The olive oil to dip it in was a nice touch though.
