“Best food ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

This place is wonderful. Service is excellent, menu has some unusual items that you really should try.The wild boar is more tender and tasty than a pork roast. (after all, it is really just a wild pig), Be adventurous and go for it. Great martinis. Owners are friendly and if not to busy, will visist with you. The chef is the owner along with his wifeso he stays pretty busy in the kitchen, which believe me is a good thing. This is our "go to" place in Weston.

“Nice Mother's Day Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

I went here with my husband's family for brunch on Mother's Day. The restaurant is right downtown and is in an old historic house, so it has a nice charm. We got baked brie as an appetizer, which was plenty for five people to split. I got the asparagus, brie, and smoked ham quiche that was on special. The service was quick and good, and all of the food was tasty, though I did think the prices were a bit high for the portions. (mine was $12 for a quiche and seasoned potatoes) We also ordered a couple of desserts that were on special. We got a lemon/raspberry cheesecake, which was delicious!

Overall, it was a good experience, but again, the prices were a bit high.

“Bad, all around!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

This restaurant clearly relies on unsuspecting tourists who may get drawn in by the patio or the appearance of a nice restaurant by the white table linens. I would never return to this restaurant. The service was absolutely horrendous. We may have seen our waitress only twice during the whole evening. No one stopped by to check if we needed refills. We had to order dessert from the person who cleaned out our entree plates. The most appalling issue with this restaurant was the food. It is not even mediocre, it's bad. There is no quality to the food. I could not believe they charge those prices. At the end of the day, it's one of only few restaurants in the town so they may not need to try harder, but we certainly wouldn't go back. First time in Weston and it was not a pleasant experience.

“Love The Patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed brunch with my husband on their patio - I had breakfast and he had lunch! Found the prices reasonable and the food good. Nice pace and attentive staff - even though we were the only two eating outside. Then you can burn off some calories by walking around downtown Weston!
