Absolutely amazing experience

We were told to go there by the hosts of the local B&B we were staying at, we are SO glad we did. We arrived Thursday evening w/out a reservation but they were accommodating and after a few minutes sat us at a high-table two top near the bar. We like the lively atmosphere but everything was... read more

We took the 4 course menu with wine pairing and it was the highlight of our 30 days on the road in the US! The watermelon salad with feta ice cream, the foie gras mousse, the beef, and pavlova were perfectly prepared. The wine selection was fantastic: we asked to have only Napa Valley wines and were introduced to some... More

Small plates, very pricey and you need to order a couple of dishes to be satisfed. Can not really complain about anything but not a restaurant we will come back to.

Friends took us to this restaurant, didn't seem that much a wow from outside, but when came in had the table closest to the window which was nice. Server was offering their daily specials - which is always nice during harvest time and food was real good. The tomatoe salad was refreshing and a lot of assorted tomatoes, not just... More

The food at this popular spot did not disappoint. The tasting menu I chose left me satiated beyond expectations. The wait service on our night seemed disinterested and generally inattentive. The sommelier, Rebecca, made up any shortfalls with expert pairings, courteousness and interesting discourse about the food and wine. She proved to be the best of all sommeliers we encountered...

We ate here with a large group in town for a wedding. The service was great especially in light of many numerous special requests and split check issues. The food was not only excellent but interesting. Definitely try the octopus. The gnocchi was also very good. In addition to large selection of wines, there are several excellent cocktails. My fav...

Wonderful restaurant in all respects. An interesting menu with couse and wine pairing. Diner may select any 3 or 4 items from light to heavier and save one selection for cheese and/or sweet.. Every choice was fantastic so with two diners it is possible to taste 6 dishes plus desserts. Can highly recommend gnocchi, octopus, watermelon dishes to start. Eggplant,... More

Found this place on Tripadviser. Kind of wished we went elsewhere. The service was good. No complaints there. The food on the other hand was plain. My wife and I both selected the 4 course meal. Opted not to do the pairing due to reviews we read. We both felt that the food was just okay. Quantity was good and... More
