The dining room holds about 20 people. The menu had 5 apps and 5 mains. The food was very good. The carpaccio had 2 teeny slices of grilled cheese sandwich on the side. Yum. My main was the Guinea Fowl. Very tasty.

Good service. Food was nothing to write home about. Started with venison carpaccio and crab cakes, most memorable was the little grilled cheese with the carpaccio. Bread was good, some kind of cheese crust. For mains ordered duck and tuna. Both were okay.

Everything was fine except my medium rare steak was overdone. Service was attentive without interfering with our conversation. Wine list was limited but good value. Scallop appetizer was delicious. Will return.
