Hidden Gem

After living here for three years, we finally discovered this amazing small restaurant. The service is superior and the food is even better! They are also extremely accommodating by customizing existing dishes. This couldn't have been a more perfect meal! Highly recommend going!

We came upon this place walking around downtown and they were open at 2:30 (many places are not), The place is so tiny, we had to sit outside,(maybe 6 tables on the inside) which was fine because it has nice seating and the weather was nice and there are umbrellas over most of the tables. The food was pretty good,... More

Lovely garden upon entering; we took the opportunity to take a couple pictures with the family members we were with. Restaurant was cozy, service was very good, and all 6 of us enjoyed our meals. 2 of us were gluten-free, and they accommodated us without any problems. Those who ordered the shrimp basket even had enough to share and commented... More

My wife and I were there in January during restaurant week. We had the dinner special, a queen's serving of prime rib, with twice baked and stuffed potato and wonderfully prepared brussels. We truly enjoyed our dinners and the price was reasonable.

Pasta was perfect el dante. Each bite an alternate of cheese and smokey ham bits or sun dried tomato. Taste as good as it looks. Will go back again.

What a lovely find! We sat inside as the weather is chilly but be aware there are only about 8 tables inside ranging from seating 2 people to maybe about 6 max. It's very small and the outside seating would have worked for us as well as they are covered and protected from the elements. I think they even had... More

Great food and great people. Get the Cuban with extra MOJO sauce I used to live here and this place was great. It is a block off center street. It has limited seating so arrive early and sit outside.

We drove around downtown looking for a place to eat and then came across this charming little place. It's very small inside and it was a rainy night so eating outside on the adorable terrace wasn't an option. We took a leap and luckily they had a table for us, although they do take reservations. The food was fabulous and... More
