This charming farm-to-table restaurant has delicious, seasonal menus and a very friendly staff. Their desserts are fantastic. It is easily our favorite place in town.

We always enjoy the experience. The restaurant is very charming and intimate. The service is impeccable and the food is delicious. There is always something new and interesting, such as the homemade saurkraut pizza, which was delicious. I We love that it is BYOB. Unfortunately, the space is small and it is very difficult to get a table. There is,... More

Quaint and romantic restaurant that is "farm to table", which I always appreciate. Special menu set up that is none like any other using the freshest ingredients.

This restaurant is one of our favorites! It is small and intimate but the food is delicious. We have dined here with friends and everyone is more than satisfied with their meals. We have also participated in their special events and those are always memorable as well as delicious. We can't say enough about this special restaurant.

Food is exceptional, always fresh and interesting. We went for my birthday dinner, made reservations weeks in advance, but have been on several occasions for lunch and dinner. The menu is small but innovative, offering something for everyone (we have been with friends that are strict vegetarians) and everyone is always very happy with their choice. Lunch is also a...

Friends invited us to join them at A Toute Heure and we couldn't have been more pleased. It's hard to get a table at this small restaurant because the food is so good and the place was packed on a Saturday night.

I've been wanting to go to this restaurant for years. I called for a reservation about 10 days in advance for a Saturday night, but I had to get wait listed because they were booked. They do not take walk ins for dinner. However, I got lucky and a few days later they called to tell me a table was... More

My wife and I went to A Toute Heure for our first time this weekend...glad we did. I've been to 100 Steps, their sister restaurant but never here. We started with some bites of pork meatballs and tater tots followed by a delicious mushroom soup. Our entrees of scallops and black bass were outstanding. Homemade ice cream and chocolate chip...
