Farm to Table

We played golf at Kennett Country Club and stopped here afterwards for dinner -- it is very close to the golf course. Never heard of it -- a member at the golf course highly recommended it. And, I see why. There were 6 in our group. We got there later in the evening, with no reservation -- it... read more

We have eaten here three times in last two years. We drove an hour an ten from the King of Prussia area to enjoy Sovana. It truly wasn't as good as any of the other times. Our waiter, the Harry Connick lookalike was the highlight of the meal. The restaurant was loud but that we knew going in. The menu... More

We just happened to be driving thru the area on our way home from a vacation looking for a dinner stop. This place came as a recommendation from a family member who is familiar with this area. We arrived at 5:45 so dinner crowd was just starting. Lovely modern décor. We had a most attentive waiter who explained the lager... More

The food is always good, I eat here a few times a month. The wait staff can be a little hit or miss but for the most part they are very attentive. My only real complaint is that they try to hard to cram to many tables is a tight space. When they are packed I won’t even bother going... More

Great farm to table menu with lots of daily specials served by knowledgeable staff. Can be crowded; make a reservation. Great patio dining space. Bar and BYOB. Pricey but good.

Had a wonderful late lunch consisting of homemade asparagus soup, cake like quiche, fantastic Cubano with homemade pork shoulder and a side of outstanding broccoli Rabe with Flava beans. The entity Re meal was wonderful with outstanding service and mango iced tea.

We had an early dinner on Sunday and the service was perfect! Our dishes were delicious and the outdoor dining area was beautiful. I've had dinner here before and I think the problem the other reviews notice is when it gets crowded here, the staff gets overwhelmed. The prices are high but the customers keep on coming back for more... More

I have been to this restaurant about a half dozen times but not lately. I was invited to dinner with six people; we arrived at 5:45 pm on a weeknight (Thursday) and were not served our appetizer until 6:45. Two in our party were not quite ready to order an entree when the server took the orders, and he never... More
