I read the reviews and figured that we'll never get in at the last minute on a Saturday night at 8:00 pm. I was wrong. I called, they said it was no problem, and my son and I were seated immediately upon arrival. Our waitress was very friendly and quite charming in her effort to accommodate our need to communicate...

I've been to this little restaurant over a dozen times and i'm impressed every time. Reservations are a MUST during high season. I bring my kids (8 and 4) and they are treated like little adults, even a tour of the kitchen for my little girl who just loves going there. It's a very small restaurant, it's tight, but it... More
