“Good food and great menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The food was great and a great menu - burgers,salads, raw oysters and clams and sushi.... They gave it all. We had the steak and fries, Ceasar salad with crab cake, and pulled pork wrap.... All delicious ... You can't go wrong!

“The best farm raised grass fed beef burger I have EVER enjoyed on the east coast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Our 1st time at this eatery.Courteous & caring staff,attentive service(even though an unexpectedly busy wed nt had them in the weeds!) My husband & I ordered the Devon Point Farm burgers which were juicy(don't waste this on well done!),perfectly done to mdm,and more flavorful than ANY wagu burger I've tasted!And the chipotle ketchup
was perfectly seasoned as well as garden fresh accompaniments!
This is how it should be done! Well worth a ride-GO!!

“Great food, good value, attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Came here with the family for a birthday party for a late lunch. Being after the main lunch time but before the dinner service, the restaurant was slow but the service was still very attentive. Our waiter was great. Didn't rush us and gave plenty of time to order. I had a unagi maki roll for a starter which was fantastic. Very fresh and nicely presented. Two of our party had the chicken pesto, one had the seafood wrap, one had the Maryland crab cakes, one had a burger (local fresh beef - awesome), and one had a chicken and brie sandwich. All of us were really happy with our meals and the portions. The restaurant was very cool with a really neat tiled bar which almost resembled a mosaic pattern. Most of us ordered deserts and none of us were disappointed. The creme brulee was really good and the specialty cheesecake which was fantastic. One of our party didn't order a dessert but the waiter brought one for her (a gelato which was really good) on the house. We really enjoyed the food and the service - made for a really special birthday luncheon!

“Great Food and Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant always offers something different on their menu. They have outside dining as well and is wonderful to sit out on a nice day. Location is wonderful in Putnam, CT (antique district)

1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Expensive. Poor service. Cold. Distasteful food. And small servings. Never going there again. Pretty sure my server was high too. -.-
