Excellent food in an intimate space

We had dinner with another couple on a not-very-busy Thursday. All the dishes were well conceived, well executed, delicious, and attractively presented. Portion sizes were more than adequate. The service was as attentive as possible with only server (who was also the owner) for the (not very... read more

Came here for a spring Sunday dinner on an overnight getaway in New Hope. There was only one other couple here, no other patrons. We had attentive service, and the restaurant is beautifully and kind of sparsely decorated. We enjoyed the heaping kale Caesar salad and the pasta dish where the vegetables in it were featured rather than an afterthought.... More

I enjoyed my meal, but unfortunately the waiter had a poor attitude when I politely asked to heat up my dish, which was noticed by everyone in our party of six. I will not return because of this.

We had two fish dishes that were excellent! The kale salad and Creme Carmel made the perfect bookends. Great service.

Nice small restaurant in New Hope (BYOB). Food tastes fresh and service is good (good with kids). Current menu more Meat driven with nice creative combinations.

Food was nice, but they did not quite hit the mark with any dish. Too much tang in one, too sweet in the next. Quite and intimate, VERY DARK. cash only - seems silly. decent, but I'll look around on our next visit.

Awesome restaurant for couples and friends getting together. The duck was delicious! My husband got the mahimahi and said it was excellent. Very great BYOB with a relaxed atmosphere.

Owner and chef cooks up new menu's quite often. all foods fresh daily. If you want a dining experience that is quaint, yet modern, attention to detail yet relaxed, this is your place. food tremendous. only draw back the restaurant is housed in an old house, this is not the problem but the lack of adequate air conditioning on hot...

We came here on Sunday night, seating was no problem. We only had main course here. I ordered duck, it was delicious. My boyfriend ordered cheese ravioli which was too sweet. I let him eat half of my duck and I tried his dish but it really wasn't pleasant. I thought it was odd we could see the waiter working... More

My wife and I have been going to tastebuds for years. we live pretty close, so the trip is worth it every time! I can honestly say that, if you can get a reservation, you won't be disappointed. I NEVER have had a bad meal there. In fact, the cuisine is so uniquely done, that each meal is a thrill!
