The Bar and bartenders were excellent, but the food in the dining area was average and not memorable. And my wife and I waited at least 30-40 minutes for our entrees in a mostly vacant restaurant (Monday evening). To the owner's credit, he checked on our order and found that the waiter had failed to turn it into the kitchen.

We went to this restaurant this weekend with early reservations because we were going to the Santa Fe Opera. We were dressed nice. When we arrived there were numerous tables available inside but bizarrely the hostess attempted to seat us on the patio even though the skies were threatening rain. We insisted on seating inside (it did sprinkle while we... More

My wife and I are there last night. Ate inside, which is actually a nice space. Waitress was very friendly, service was great. I had the steak frites which was very good. What I really recommend was what my wife had. You can order 5 'small plates" from the bar menu. She had a variety of dishes, all very nicely... More

We took advantage of the five for 35 menu, each normally 8 dollars. Actually had six items and were charged 8 for the sixth which I don't understand. Calamari, cheese dish, onion soup, chicken pot pie and the steak and salad. Each very tasty. My martini was super, wife's margarita was a bit heavy on the tequila!

We tasted some appetizers which were original and very tasty. Then we dove into those fabulous, fresh East Coast oysters. Delicious! Service was excellent and the prices, for the quality, very reasonable.

Food was great and the wine list was extensive. We had a small issue with the service, but it was corrected without having to make a fuss. The recovery far outweighed the issue.

We had a great meal made with novel combinations of fresh food. The wine selection is really good as well. I enjoyed every bit of the sole entree special, my husband enjoyed his lamb special. Very good service.

About one a month I take a group of six to 315 and we always love it. The chef is delighted to accommodate special dietary needs and does a great job with vegetarian requests. Specializes in organic. The special each evening are written on a chalk board, always interesting and yummy. Try the sole - excellent!

The food is quite good. I definitely feel it was worth price. Lots of character. I've historically been a meat and potatoes guy...the fact that I keep thinking about their kale salad should tell you something. Everything I've had I've liked. I was a bit disappointed in the béarnaise served with my steak, but the herb butter made up for... More
