    When we arrived the hostess was taking a reservation however see made eye contact and I was happy to wait. Then another lady came right over and spoke to me and at that time the hostess was finished and off we went to this beautiful table we decided to use the couch instead of the chairs. The hostess took my coat and told me about our server Lexy who was phenomenal from start to finish. Her eloquence was just incredible the way she manoeuvre around the table and her beautiful smile made it ever so much more special. The food was delicious and the wine selected by Encore was exquisite and matched our expectations. Thank you for a fantastic date night and can not wait to come back.
