Great local place

The menu is small and in changing with dishes that seem old fashioned BUT the food is perfectly prepared and delish! Small , cozy, great service. Worth a try!

My boyfriend and I went here for a romantic dinner. It was wonderful. Yes, you do have to make reservations but it's well worth it. Excellent food and ambiance. He had the lamb and I had the prawns. Both outstanding. This is a place that you go to enjoy a one on one with someone or maybe four people tops.... More

Nice chic recently opened little bistro with locally sourced food was a delightful spot for a ladies birthday night out. We had reservations but were running late; they adjusted well and treated us with kindness and friendliness, from the hostess, to the servers, all appropriately attentive and accomodating to questions and changes. Wonderful, flavorful food, just right-- has a bit... More

I started both visits with the White Burgundy my wife selected the Zinfandel. We ordered Caesar Salad and Tomato and Pepper soup with... More

There are only a few tables and we were fortunate enough to get a reservation. You know a restaurant is amazing when locals have their tables reserved for their weekly dinner. The couple next to us was celebrating their anniversary. The prawns and pan fried halibut were excellent. Chef Corey has an open kitchen, and you can see how much... More
