“Always a pleasant dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Celebrated my Birthday here Tuesday evening and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The menu is always a new experience. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The dishes are creative and the staff is always friendly and very attentive. A good choice for an evening out!

“Taste was good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Food tasted nice just on the heavy side and a bit overly salty. Place was clean and service nice and friendly.

“Overpriced, Over-rated.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

The food, while very good, was also very expensive compared to other places in town. It's a strip mall store front restaurant without much atmosphere and it charges New York prices.

“nice price fix lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Great place to meet friends for lunch. A BYOB restaurant, with a good menu. staff always friendly and helpful. Owner operated chef, and his lovely wife Linda is always around the resaturant. Love the french onion soup, but noticed that lately the bowls became significantly smaller. Salmon and tuna are among the best lunch choices in my opinion. Consistantly mosit and wonderful. Never disappointed in those two. Deserts have also decreased in portion size, but that could be a good thing... Would recommend....also, check out their cooking classes :)

“Very spotty cooking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Restaurant is beautiful. The food is very iffy. On our first visit, the rack of lamb was overcooked (asked for rare). Sent it back: the second was ice-cold.
On our second visit, the Louisiana chicken soup was very salty. The "pork loin" had apparently been pounded and the "demi glace" was tasteless but salty. The grouper was spoiled and the sauce was extremely lemony and salty but did not hide the rotteness.
The mascarpone was great.
