My husband and I received an invite and coupon at the Avondale Bacon Fest (yes bacon fest!) and decided to drop in for dinner on our way home. We had a table for two by the window and were delighted with the atmosphere. We enjoyed a beautifully presented and delicious meal. Hubby went for pub fare - wings and fries... More

Cute place, good service, great food. Leaky AC in our room was a bit gross for such a nice place. If I'm ever in the area again I would return here.

My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous meal the other evening at Coca Pesto. The service was excellent, just the right balance of attention without getting in the way and very friendly. I had the fish and chips which was divine. The batter was a very light thin coating with just the right amount of crunch and the fish was... More

The service was great and the ribs are the best I've had. Love the pump house beer on tap as well! Will definitely come back.

We made our reservation on the Monday before and showed up at our reservation time with the other members of our party for a total of 4 people. As it was our first... More

We went for dinner with friends from the UK and were looking forward to visiting with them. We thought the ambiance of the restaurant was good. The menu, however, is very strange - the server told us they had put two menu's together (one from their casual dining area, as well as the dinner area). This made it very confusing... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting Windsor and having dinner at this wonderful restaurant. I spent many years working in fine dining and the staff here were very professional. The food was excellent. I have heard some say it is a bit pricey. My suggestion for those people stick with East side Marios and McDonalds. If you... More

It you're within a 1 1/2 hour drive this place should not be missed. Freshest of ingredients and a great atmosphere. I had the Chicken Breast with Porcini Mushrooms in a white cream sauce and it was incredible! My husband had the pan seared Digby Scallops and was speechless until hi s dinner was gone! LOVE this place! Owners are... More
