A 70 seat American-Fusion Restaurant, the only one in the area using truly local ingredients and changes thier menu every two weeks based on the availability of products. Both the beer menu and wine list are extensive and reasonable. As well one of the only restaurants that say if we don't have we will do our best to get it for your reservation.

A nice variety of specials and regular offerings. Always fresh and many local foods are featured. Chefs Megan and Charles are awesome.

My wife has gone here many times for lunch, they have a very affordable and fair selection on the lunch menu. We decided to go for dinner, this is one of our top picks for a nice dinner. The environment is not the best for a romantic dinner, it can get loud and does not feel totally intimate. The owners... More

I had been meaning to come to this restaurant for awhile and finally made it this weekend. My wife and I had a very pleasant meal in a very calm atmosphere. Unlike too many restaurants these days, I did not feel crowded, or rushed, and could speak at a normal volume. Of course I go to a restaurant for the... More

Our experience was disappointing, which was surprising given the many good to excellent reviews this place has received. Good pre-dinner drinks from the bar, but down-hill from there. Their version of antipasto was ordinary: cured meats and cheeses (Maz, provolone and a blue) tasted more like good grocery store deli than local artisanal cheeses and charcuterie as advertised, accompanied by...

I had high expectations after someone I know pretty well recommended this place but it fell quite short. The food was substandard and the owners particularly the male were quite rude, dismissive and couldn't be bothered. There was no good excuse because it wasn't that busy. The atmosphere was cold and not inviting. Go across the street to Brasserie. Or... More

We had a horrible problem with this restaurant a few months ago - very poor service. We later emailed the restaurant to complain, and we are happy to say that they handled the problem in a very satisfactory manner. So we are now looking forward to returning to the restaurant.

Such a great restaurant. The food was very good as were the signature cocktails. What I liked best was the variety of choices to eat. Being a vegetarian it usually limits my food choices but not this restaurant. I had the Tofu for an appetizer and it was so delicious. For a main course my husband had the salmon and... More

We dined here before a show on Friday night. They had just changed the menu and the criticism I had was that the staff was not trained on the new menu. The dishes were full of flavor and creative. We ordered the chicken and the new crispy fish entrees. The only thing I didn't like was receiving the fish with... More

I have dined here multiple times and it is one of my very favorite restaurants in the area! The food is always delicious and so unique (one time my Fiance got Kangaroo here, it was so good!). In addition the atmosphere and layout of the restaurant is superb and they always have new artwork on display every.
