Decent service, nice appetizers. Then it fell apart. I'll keep this brief. Not interested in giving it time.

The other lady ordered salmon and received bass. The waiter couldn't understand... More

Our friends picked us up at airport @ 6pm. They weren't sure whether we would be late, so they made reservations for 8:00pm. Well, we got there @ 6:30. The hostess & co-owner, Alice, was gracious and seated us immediately. Unbelievable for a holiday. Anyway, we started out with an appetizer of escargot & cream on toast points......delicious! On to... More

Front hostess (older woman who is the chefs wife) was so snappy and rude to us I was completely shocked. Instantly I regretted having made a reservation as she set the tone for the night. We waited over ten minutes for our server... More

We have been here multiple times different times of year and the food and service is very consistent. All the meals we have eaten were prepared fresh and presented very well. The staff is very courteous and well trained.

This place is amazing!!!! The owner is there every day, or at least when I have been there. My family goes on special occasions because this place is so lovely. We all love everything. I try to get a different dish every time we go, and every thing I have had is melt in your mouth wonderful. The wines are... More

Had dinner with friends and the food was well above average. Service was very good also. The restaurant has a warm and inviting ambience. The staff was very attentive and yet did not make us feel like we needed to eat and run. A very pleasant dining experience.
