My wife and I went to the Peoples Kitchen on a recent Thursday night for dinner. I know we like to dine early but at 5 PM we were the only couple in the restaurant. The restaurant is on the 2nd floor but there is an elevator for anyone, like me, with accessibility issues. We both had the Prix-Fixe dinner... More

We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. The waiter was knowledgeable, engaging, and did everything right. The food was fabulous. We both had the 3-course prix fix dinner and opted for the wine pairings to match each course (+$15). Every bite of every course was delicious from the fried goat cheese w/berries appetizer to the duck entree (leg confit... More

I visited CWB on a quiet Sunday night and dined at the bar. The bartender was extremely friendly and spent a good amount of time chatting with myself and dining partner. The menu here is small, but don't let that scare you away! The food is fresh and tasty with some truly creative twists to each dish. They have an... More

I love outside dining in the summer and this place stands apart from the rest of the the city restaurants because its patio is NOT along a busy noisy city street or parking lot. The fresh air and interesting old buildings made for a nice experience on top of the phenomenal food! The creative menu is small, but changes frequently.... More

Fantastic Groupon running right now for this location. $40 for Prix Fixe meal for two. App, entree, dessert for each person. We were starving and ordered charcuterie as well. In house smoked pork sausage with some Gouda, hot crusty French loaf, fig spread, honey, mustard and homemade pickled veggies came. Apps were duck wontons and an herbed goat cheese on... More

Like many others, we grabbed a Groupon for a delicious 3 course meal. The menu is rather small but packs a punch! Everything was delicious! Also, we were not rushed! Sometimes with three course meals it seems like they all come out at the same time, but not here! Our waitress made sure we were happy and had a great... More

It started with a very pleasant greeting from the hostess who seated us in a nice airy room next to a window. My wife had the seared tuna sashimi and I had the radish and romaine salad as the starter of the Prix Fixe menu. The salad was a delicious mixture of textures and flavors with sesame seeds, carrots, crispy... More

I have been here twice in the past two weeks and both times were excellent experiences. I have tried the fried goat cheese, the pea soup and the radish salad for appetizers. Tried the swordfish, duck and seared tuna for the main courses, and the creme brulee, trio of sorbets and chocolate tasting for desserts. My dining partners and I... More

We ate here on a Groupon a few weeks back. The menu is variable (changed every 2 weeks we believe and limited. You are invited to pick amongst a small number of appetizers, main courses, which include accompaniments and desserts. Due to the Groupon, some entree selections were not available. The preparation, presentation, and taste were very good! I especially... More
