A cosy, welcoming place with friendly, attentive and charming staff and the most delicious meal we’ve had in a long time. Fresh flavours, interesting combinations-an absolute delight. The best meal we’ve eaten in the US since moving here 2 years ago. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Great service, a very cozy atmosphere, good parking, and good food. Much touted swordfish special was supposed to be crispy on the outside, was not but was still delicious. Good wine selection, and good value for money.

This cozy restaurant is a gem and the food was so good that we were lucky enough to dine there twice in one week. The wine list is also excellent, a perfect pairing with the excellent food.
