The restaurant is really beautiful. Four of us had reservations for dinner. We were seated on the back porch with windows all around, and I really liked the table. The bar area is in the front of the restaurant where you come in, and that was very nice and modern. We were seated almost immediately. The wait staff was very efficient and attentive. Bread was very freshly baked, and delicious. The menu is a bit limited, but there were plenty of items for each of us. I had the Bistro Chopped Salad, a nice portion and then the Carbonara for dinner. It was very good, but I do like Carbonara with the poached egg on top but they don't serve it with the egg. The pasta was nice and al dente, and it is made with chicken thighs. I had two gristle bones with the thighs but otherwise the dish was good. My husband had the Lentil soup - he really enjoyed it - and the Shrimp & Grits, he thought it was very good. On of our companions ordered the fish special, a whitefish but it came raw in the middle, she had to send it back to be cooked. When they brought it back it looked like they added more sauce to the dish too...but she said it was good. We didn't try any of the desserts as we decided we would try another place for dessert.
