“Was not impressed with my dish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

While there was nothing wrong with my dish, Asian Slaw, there was nothing special about it and for the price I expected to be impressed. It was mostly cabbage and lacked richness in flavor. However, it's a real cozy atmosphere and the service was excellent. Perhaps other dishes are more impressive in flavor. The olive spread, by the way, was awesome. I would return here again and try a different dish for another chance.

“not a great place for vegetarians”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

we were here in october 2012. It was nice to see that each food item on the menu had small codes like (V) or (NF) for vegan or nut-free. I got the Asian Slaw. It was basically stir-fry cabbage with tofu and sesame seeds. Nothing gourmet or special about this dish.

My spouse ordered the sole dish -- full of cream and butter -- this can make anything taste good.

the most memorable thing about the food here was the olive tapenade they brought to spread on the bread.

Everything was wonderful and creative. Loved the scallops with turmeric. Great salads too. Romantic dining room and reasonable for food at this level.

“Wonderful dinner for a double anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

We were joined by friends who were celebrating their wedding anniversary with ours. Gerry's bartending skills were perfect, as always. The scallops, salmon, and pasta with procuitto and duck were all excellent.
