good selection and food served by friendly and well trained staff. Lunches are moderately priced although dinners are a bit pricey.

Great food, well prepared and presented. The atmosphere was very pleasant, and since it was a nice day, we were able to eat outside.

We have been there twice and both times really enjoyed the food. Service is great. The place is pretty busy on weekends which seems to attest to it's solid reputation. On weekends, I would recommend reservations.

We recently had dinner and overall it was a good experience. Service was excellent, food was very good but portions rather small for the prices and the tables were very close together. Atmosphere lacking.

We have been going to this restaurant for about a year. It has quickly become one of our favorites. The food is always excellent and the staff is very polite and professional. The owner is always there and is very nice. Hands on in the ordering and serving of food as well as overseeing the smooth running of the restaurant.... More
