This is a very popular and crowded place. I can only conclude that people are attracted to the veneer. There is nice outdoor seating and a good selection of gourmet faire to eat here, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating. The food is mediocre no matter how attractive the label and presentation might be. I see it has a pretty high rating on Citysearch. Other reviewers must not be local and can't have tried other places to compare. It's expensive and over-priced too. The selection breads, cheeses, olive oil and mustards can mostly be bought in the supermarket, why pay a premium here? Indifferent cashiers and pick a number food ordering and service. Pass.
Pros: Upscale appearance, Large selection, Location
Cons: Food Sucks, Overpriced, Bad Service
