I enjoyed a pleasant dinner out with friends here. The noise level in the front of the restaurant and near the bar was pretty intense, but at our request we were seated in the back where conversation was easy. The menu mixed fancy offerings with traditional ones and we were in a more traditional mood that night. One of us enjoyed a nicely prepared steak in a dark wine sauce while two of us enjoyed a very flavorful organic chicken breast reminiscent of the better supremes de volaille I've enjoyed in French bistros. The butternut squash and apple soup was extraordinary as an appetizer. The wine list featured a wide selection by the bottle and the glass. I had a delicious French Mourvèdre blend. The sommelier stopped by our table and chatted for a while. He clearly knows his wines and delights in assembling a diverse and delicious cellar. I look forward to my next visit.
