Great restaurant. Intimate, close to downtown, great food. We had the white gazpacho (fantastic), grilled peaches with bacon, Quail, bison with fingerling potatoes, roasted fish with watermelon and pesto, pork shoulder with shishitos (spicy). Dessert we had blackberry crisp with peach ice cream (great), the torte and the creme brulee (fine but not outstanding). Lovely meal, lovely evening.

The menu is full of fresh options. The cheese plate is a must as well as a perfect glass of wine. All of which is very doable because the great wine list and the tasty cheeses available. The entrees vary from meat to seafood but no matter what you select it is delectable. Leave room for dessert as you will... More

What a delightful surprise! We discovered this charming restaurant while window shopping on Wall St. We chose a seat at the bar so we could chat with the bartender and people watch. I ordered the Mac n Cheese with prosciutto, peas and cheddar, my boyfriend ordered the yellow fin tuna with Asian coleslaw. Absolutely out of this world. This restaurant... More

We loved this restaurant for the fresh food and drink specials. Definitely worth the time to linger over a three course meal. Never a bad meal, and will be back soon.

We had dinner here. They have live music in the bar area which was quite good. While the menu is eclectic and interesting the food itself was less so. Admittedly, I have an expectation of the actual food matching the menu descriptions. This came close. Prices are high for an upscale casual restaurant - closer to what you'd expect in... More

Recently had dinner with the family here. We travel a bit and like nice restaurants. The food here was clearly straight from the farm as advertised. We had a mushroom appetizer that was incredibly flavorful and for this mushroom aficionado, almost perfect. The papardelle was also very fresh and just like the thick noodle tgat grandpa used to make. The... More

We had dinner here one night and breakfast here one morning. Everything is super fresh and delicious. The heirloom tomato salad was great. We both had the pork shoulder which was excellent. Our server was very attentive, and the atmosphere was nice. For breakfast we both had the Eggs Benton which were a take on Eggs Benedict with grit cakes... More

My daughter, husband and I shared several small plates and loved all of them. I picked the pickle assortment without asking what was in it and I'm so glad I didn't - if I'd heard rhubarb, I would have passed but I couldn't get enough of it. I'm not a mac and cheese person but couldn't get enough of the... More

We had to change our reservation a couple of times and staff, Eric in particular was very helpful. The restaurant is very nice and there was live music on the Friday night we dined. Much of the food is locally sourced which is something I look for. Three of us had a large plate which was a decent serving, however... More
