My husband & I ate in the bar Saturday evening because we were too hungry to wait for our later reservation in the main restaurant. The bar had a nice friendly buzz & we were treated to a symphony of service that was wonderful to experience. Our primary server, Christain (sp?), said she & the other bartender would look after...

Thank you to Jason & Jay for such an enjoyable evening. Everyone agreed that this was the standout meal of our vacation. As well, we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with you about kayaking, all the local seafood and most importantly... wine! Looking forward to coming back for more.

Cooking classes are offered here in the upstairs area. Both hands on and demonstration are offered. My wife has attended nearly fifty demos and enjoyed them all. Our meal was a light one: split a beet salad which was excellent and enough for each of us. We both ordered the Beef Carpaccio. It came on chilled plates and was artistically... More

Excellent food, always consistent, and always hot! Michael Anthonys bolognese is as good as it gets. You won't be disappoined! I have eaten here many times and the food is always full of flavor, presented beautifully, with attentive, excellent services. The atmosphere is contemporary upscale and just a relaxing place to dine. Additionally, the wine selection is very good.

My wife and I agreed that the food was outstanding. The wine list was also first rate and made the "Wine Spectator's" best restaurant wine lists. Our server, Lucy, had excellent knowledge of the menu and made some great recommendations. She provided us with outstanding service and made our evening very special.
