what a wonderful experience...we will be making this a yearly stop during our family vacation. We had a table of eight that included twin 10 yr olds. We were greeted with a friendly smile from all of the staff and made to feel right at home. I loved the eclectic décor. I am an avid antique collector and immediately fell... More

Its almost impossible to get one of this tiny bistro's 8 tables without making reservations well in advance but with good planning one can get them and expect a great eating experience. We've never been disappointed except when we attempted to making an impromptu visit. While we wish the menu was larger, but whatever we've ordered has been tasty and... More

By looking at the outside and where it is located, one would never think of how wonderful this place is. The charm and quaintness is surpassed by the outstanding quality of food an amazing service. Every item offered for dinner sounded amazing. The only regret I have is that I couldn't order everything. It was fun to share the salad,... More

Quirky - as others have said - yes. Unusual - yes. Fun - always. Food - unbelievable. Reservations are required, and hard to get. Only two weeks in advance - and you leave a message requesting a dare and time. They only call you if that date and time are good. If not - you hear nothing. Frustrating - but... More

Our 3rd time at this quirky, delicious restaurant. Our waitress was Gina. The only thing printed is the wine list. Your server describes the appetizers and main course options to you - in perfect, appetizing detail! We shared the salad and also shared the crab and artichoke dip. Yummy!!! For main courses, my husband had the scallops in a maple/... More

First time back in a year - and we are just as thrilled as last time. Food: amazing. Service: amazing. Why don't we come here more? Need to work on that. To all the nay sayers - look past the plastic chairs tables etc: this place is an experience and it's great! Large portions - I had enough got a... More

Heard great things about this restaurant and was excited to get a reservation for my birthday. Unfortunately the evening was more of a miss than a hit.. I was prepared for the mismatched plastic table cloths and the white plastic lawn chairs, but not for the fact that there was no written menu. All conversation in the room had to... More

This is by far the best restraurant we visited in our 5 day stay. Little, different and very eccentric but the food and staff, from the waitresses to the cook to the neighborhood baker made this place the place to go. The menu changes every day, therefore the two ladies who served us verbally gave us the menu. You had... More

Had heard about this place from friends for a long time and finally went. Wow, what I've been missing! While it's true that the atmosphere isn't exactly posh, the food is downright superb. Our waiter Patrick was truly passionate about the dishes as he described them and provided us excellent service. There is seating in the front and in the... More
