We went for dinner 6 of us, my daughter found a big black hair entangled in her pasta dish. It was really uncomfortable as we were with her boyfriends parents we met for the first time so we really didn't want to make a big deal about it but..... It took a long time for us to get the waitress... More

This is a cool, funky little restaurant at which I've only ever had appetizers and drinks. Outstanding was the fondue for 2 - that included beef tenderloin and crispy portobellos to dip in a gorgonzola cheese sauce. Oh my. If you're going and put on a wait - do yourself a favor and stroll across the street to the 'Social... More

I took some friends there for a celebratory brunch. I had never been there before but felt confident in the choice based on the excellent reviews. Unfortunately the food was very disappointing. I make a much better french toast at home! The portions were small and the service was mediocre. Embarrassed, I ended up taking my friends out a few... More

I may have to come back to this area for Carrot papardella served in this restaurant. It was my wife's birthday and decided to have a dinner there. Called about 8:30 to make a reservation for 9:30. It was taken immediately. The staff was very helpful and made excellent suggestions. we loved the Fondue for two, Tuna tartar was ok,... More

We had a great time at this funky restaurant. The food was good and the service was too. It seems to be very popular with both locals and visitors.

Showed up without a reservation but was still able to get a table for my party of 3 on the patio. We were dressed casually and did not feel out of place. Service was excellent and food was too. I had linguine with chicken (one of the less expensive entrees) and it did not disappoint.

By far one of our favorites. Outstanding appetizers you can share and incredible entrees. Make a reservation and you will not be disappointed.

The world is vast, filled with many options and how lucky am I to be able to say my favorite restaurant is not far from home. The atmosphere lends itself to either romantic, friends or family. The service is very good, but the food is lovely. The Carrot Papardella-tossed with lobster, shrimp and crabmeat is everyone's favorite. The apps are... More
