A Memorable Meal

We both chose the three small plate options and had the wine pairings. I actually write for a living and I'm also a former chef and it would be hard to praise the inspired dishes highly enough. My absolute favorite was the confit/fois gras plate and the wine that went with it. Each dish was elegant... read more

We originally booked a table for two, then changed the reservation for 4 and then again for 5 ! On each occasion the staff was courteous and accommodating! The food was great and the service even nicer! You won't be disappointed...

The restaurant is run by two chefs: a man and his wife. The menu has the standard Table d'Hote layout on the left, but on the right is a unique menu. Two column labeled Vices and Versas. The Vices are the male side and the Versas are the female side. The ingredients are the same on each side, but the... More

Dinner here is a unique experience. You have a list of his offerings and a list of her offerings. You choose any three, which are served as if you are having three courses. There are wine recommendations for each item or you can choose your own by the glass or the bottle. The food was excellent but a little heavy... More

The restaurant is located a bit out of the way in an old renovated house. The meals are interesting - out of this world. They pair the wines for you with bit of extra $$ but they are good. Excellent service - a bit slow but that is the way good food is supposed to be enjoyed! You get to... More

This husband and wife chef team have an excellent gig going. Each have their preferences in the kitchen and what ends up on the plate is fantastic. The ambience of the restaurant, the attentive staff and excellent food make for an enjoyable evening. Not inexpensive, but well worth it! The wine list could be better IMHO.

We booked to eat here almost 6 months in advance and still had to rearrange our travel schedule to dine on a Thursday as opposed to the weekend. It was definitely worth it. The concept of Mr Vices and Mrs Versa competing to win diners with their menu selection was fun. Essentially they offer 18 medium-sized main courses and recomment... More
