Had a lovely dinner in DL tonight. Service was amazing and food and drinks were great. Nico was attentive and made some great Manhattans and made wine recommendations which we could taste before deciding on a bottle. Good venue with great potential..

Had a great experience here. The food was really good, especially the karaage chicken and my steak was cooked perfectly. No problems amending the garnish to suit my dairy allergy. The others loved the pork belly salad and would definitely return for that alone.

Food was fabulous when myself and my partner went for our anniversary last week. Decor is tasteful yet, not in your face. Couldn’t fault the service - overall, excellent choice for date night!
