“Great Meal, Great Service, and All That Jazz !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

I had dinner here on Sunday; salad with local fresh ingredients, halibut perfectly cooked and a chocolate bread pudding with vanilla ice cream with some hazelnut coffee. One of the best meals I have ever had-anywhere. Service was superb. An unexpected bonus was the Charlie Holland Jazz Band-I didn't know they played on Sundays-it was like getting a gift in the mail you were not expecting to receive. All I can say is the chef, the staff, and the food are all awesome.

“An excellent surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We went for a quick lunch, and I had the tuna over greens with wasabi dressing, which was absolutely heavenly. The server, Quinn, was by herself with many tables, and she managed to do a fantastic job. Great service, great atmosphere, great value, GREAT FOOD! What more can one ask for?

“Delicious dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Great food. The innovative trout Putanesca special was light and flavorful. The appetizers were delicious as well. There was a quesadilla topped with prosciutto on the specials and it was quite good. We has another appetizer that I don't recall the name of but it was very good. It was a crab stuffed nem (egg roll). It was light and all crab. The service was good as well. Skip the white Sangria. It was very bad.

“Deliciously Different ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

I been here for lunch before but never dinner. What a different set of menu combinations. The service was great and food delicious. While I rarely order dessert, I did and was yummy as well. Give it a try.
