My wife and I were finally able to have a date night. Life can be so busy, but we were fortunate to get away. I have a friend that is a waitress here and I was supposed to go here about a year ago for a Christmas party. The Salmon sounded awesome and I have wanted to have it for... More

What a great fine dining experience. The pork chop was delicious and the salmon was great. Our server was excellent. We would definitely eat there again.

We ate there two weeks ago with a group of family & friends. I had the prime rib and my wife had the pork chop. As usual it was very good. We eat here every few months, some times more often. We like to go to hear the small bands or piano player they hire on various nights. The restaurant... More

Looked like the best place in Washington, most seemed like greasy dives. Very nice atmosphere. Got a Greek Salad that was the farthest thing from what I know as a Greek Salad I have ever had. It was spinach ,very little feta, only a couple of olives and the dressing was way to sharp with red wine vinegar. Rest of... More

This was an amazing bistro with a great atmosphere in a charming downtown. The service was exceptional. If you are in Little Washington, make sure you stop by here.

Washington is for fortunate to have such a terrific restaurant. The atmosphere is interesting and delightful. The new carpet has toned down the noise level and makes it a great place to take out of town guests or meet local friends. The bread is the best of any place I have eaten. The menu offers a full variety but is... More

This was our first visit and the food was excellent. My steak was cooked to perfection and my husband enjoyed one of the specials, the lamb chops with a yogurt mint sauce. Our waitress Johnny was so personable and attentive. Hubby was impressed with the finishing touch - key lime pie. I would highly recommend this place. My son in... More

I love this place ... everything about it... The menu is wonderful, great chef.. and the evening bartender..... the best specialty drinks I've ever had! When music is performed... great electric piano player. Located in an old bank with the original "safe" behind bar.
