All of our guests raved about the food, service and atmosphere. What ever owner Melanie Barrett is doing, don't ever stop. You have loyal customers for life. Anyone visiting... More

It's fine dining but this generally means small portions. Atmosphere was ok. Wouldn't go back or recommend to anyone!

My wife and I have been here 7-8 times and it's great everytime. I love watching them prepare and plate my meal. Great atmosphere and service is always excellent as well. If that all wasnt enough- creme Brule is alway on the desert menu- boom. Definitely our go-to!

This restaurant does not disappoint. Their menu is small, fresh, different, and made to order in front of your eyes. I love the open kitchen. The specials are always great and the staff know their wines - tell them what you like and let them pick something for you.

The kitchen is open and the aromas of the food being prepared circulate throughout the restaurant. Courtney was our server and she was simply great, very pleasant, very... More
