Excellent food, fine service. That said a friend who is gluten free said they were not hospitable when it came to making substitutions. Be sure to make a reservation as it is small and intimate.

Visited on Christmas Eve. It was pleasant enough but nothing special. Crab cake to start followed by Mediterranean chicken. Both ok but not amazing. Wouldn’t rush back.

1st time here. Food ok. Didn't have any Reisling wine. Had to pay $10 for warm decaf coffee, because I could only get an entire French press carafe. Maybe they need a single serve coffee maker.
