This is a reliably very good restaurant. The food is locally sourced. I love that. All of the dishes are inventive yet not over prepared like some restaurants. You can't go wrong here. Go early if you can it can get a little loud later in the evening,

hands down, my favorite place to eat...down side, it has ruined me! everyplace else is secound rate...if u want delightful mouthfuls of fresh foods touched with herbs, aioli, exquisite but simple sauces, this is your place. the decor is simple, sophisticated; country wood floors, white tables/chairs, airy windows and candles. the servers are great. the food, atmosphere, rare. glitch in...

A Toute Heure is a local favorite for us. Farm to table fresh ingredients with inspired preparations. It's small and cozy, sometimes a bit noisy. It is a bit pricey, but always pleases.

This restaurant is great if you are into organic, modernised meals. They have fresh cheeses, meats, veggies, and fish. Every day they update their menu in order to include the fresh catch of the day. It's expensive, so we only go for special occasions, but it's well worth it!

Excellent as usual. The table and service are fine. Starting with Sara's mussels is always a great way to begin a special night. Wide variety of dinner options will satisfy everyone's desire. But save room for dessert. The perfect way to end the night.

We were on time for our 9:15 reservation - and were told it would be about a 10 minute wait. This was our first visit here - we new it was pricey and was a BYOB - but the dining room is shockingly small. For the kind of money we would have paid I would prefer a better ambiance. There... More

LOVE this place! Met a friend for lunch and ordered what I had been eyeing all month! The Black Bean soup was superb. then I ordered the veggie sandwich with roasted beats on a beer bread- the most amazing thing ever. and It came with a chocolate chip cookie. Friend got the pork pot pie and very much enjoyed.

This was my first time going as reservations are next to impossible to get - weekend requires 3+ weeks in advance - so we went mid-week, which is a bit easier. It's a very small place with a country farm house type feel and not the most comfortable seating. But what it lacks in decor it more than makes up... More
