My hubby & I went here last night for our anniversary dinner. We wanted to try a new place out. We are happy we did. Both of our meals were very good. My husband had the scallops which were nicely seared and served with burst yellow and red grape tomatoes, leeks & spinach arranged artfully on the plate. I had the special they were offering ..house made seafood ravioli with baby shrimp all though the grand marnier cream sauce..very nice! Our server Christine was personable and efficient. The restaurant décor was warm and comfortable. We were surprised that the restaurant was so empty on a Saturday night..It was early but there should have been more people there. We left a little after 6 and there were only 3 other tables taken. The only negative thing I could say about this place is that there was no side salads offered on the menu. It would have been nice to have a small side salad with my ravioli. The menu is evolving so maybe they will be offering it in the future. But overall, the food and service were good and we will be trying it again.

“Great new place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This restaurant recently opened so we decided to try it out. We had appetizers and drinks in the bar area. We really enjoyed our appetizers and there were several enticing things to choose from on the menu. We also looked at the entrees on the menu and we will definitely be back to try some of them. We met one of the owners and he told us that the menu will be evaluated periodically and new items will be added. The vibe and décor is cozy. We really liked the exposed brick and painted zip codes on the wall. Spacious bar area with several TVs. Great service, and great beer and wine selection.
