I have been here for dinner and parties. Excellent food and service. had the duck last time and loved it. Lots of parting in the back. High end cooking with a family home atmosphere. Clean, quiet and un-rushed dining.

I had some credit for Restaurants.com and I was meeting my husband in Wayne and I found this place quite at random. I wasn't expecting much until I drove up. It is at the end of a road as if to say, "You have arrived!" the inside was cute and had a decent bar area. Immediately, the hostess was charming.... More

This is absolutely my husband's and my favorite restaurant. The food is consistently delicious and the service is awesome. Don't be fooled by the regular menu (in terms of size, it's smaller than average compared to other local menus), John Martino puts together one heck of a "specials" menu. Additionally, what the menu lacks in size, it makes up for... More

First the food served is very good. My family has eaten there a few times. It is a nice cozy place to eat, but the service is very poor. I blame the management, because they only had one waitress taking care of the entire dining room and although she worked hard to take care of all the customers, she was... More

We recently had dinner here with family (four of us) and the food and the service was OUTSTANDING. We eat here fairly often and had never had a bad experience. Heidi was our waitress and she is the BEST!

I don't know why everyone is so crazy about this place but went there last week and the server ignored or rushed us through everything. When we went there at first, we were ignored for 10 minutes until the bartender actually showed us out seats. The lady who was our server was too impatient with us. She treated us like... More

The choices on the menu were incredible. Everything we had from the appetizers to dessert were wonderful. We are already making plans to go back with a... More

My husband and I found this gem via Groupon, not knowing what to expect. What we found was a beautiful building, charmingly decorated populated with attentive staff and excellent food. The menu was so enticing that choices were almost impossible! Everything we ordered was nicely presented and delicious. Next time birthday money arrives, I know where we're eating!

We have eaten here many times and everything we have had has been very good. Service good nice place. However.... On our last visit , one guest in our party had the filet mignon and it was very tough and had to eat. It was a shame because everything else was very good!! When she complained the waitress said she... More
