The restaurant features a contemporary bistro-style menu, formed from the idea that casual dining can be stylish, and that some of our favorite comfort foods can benefit with the remix of contemporary flair. In addition to revised classics, the menu includes small plate "tastes" to share or enjoy with a cocktail. Daily specials from Chef Daniella Ward complete the culinary scenario by offering inspirations of the moment, influenced by the season.

Enjoyed New Years Eve dinner here with our son and another couple. The service was fantastic, as was the food. This was our 2nd time here and we definitely look forward to our next visit!

It is still on the menu so diners must be liking it. Now on as a slightly smaller bistro plate. Loved the chocolate peanut butter cake!

I was there recently with a group of friends and enjoyed some great food. I had soup and a chopped salad for my meal - delicious. They offer a nice selection of breads with the meal too. Our waiter, however, was not very friendly and seemed annoyed with us. I would describe him as "haughty" - not sure why, there... More

My husband and I recently dined at Fenz. We decided to give it a try after work one evening. We got there very early in the evening and when we walked in there were no diners on the first floor and only one seated couple upstairs. When we entered and asked for a table for two the gentleman host looked... More
