The restaurant has a moderate noise level and excellent food. The service is excellent. The menu has a wide range of foods from salads to entrees. It also has an almost European desert selection.

Mixed green salad was fresh and the dressing was light not heavy saucy at all. Save room for dessert..as when you walk in you pass them by and can see what you... More

We had dinner there last night. They start out giving you a delicious, large homemade popover I had the Tuscan organic chicken. It was yummy and so were the sides served with it. Though I would have preferred potatoes instead of the garlic bread served with it. My husband had the black angus burger which was also excellent. Osmany was... More

Five ladies went for lunch and all enjoyed their choices. Shrimp salad, quiche, brie and pear sandwich were among the selections. Quiche was more bready than custardy but tasty. Coffee is excellent. Our server Deya was attentive and made us believe she cared about our satisfaction. Desserts looked good but were nothing special in taste as is often the case.... More

We went there for a wedding anniversary dinner and it was lovely. Chose to eat in the "inside" dining room bcause it is a little quieter than the atrium. Food is delicious and we really like the fact that we can choose a real dining room or the outside feel of the bar/atrium.

I went for lunch and had their roast beef sandwich. It was delicious! The service was also great. Our waiter was very friendly and the restaurant is clean. It is a bit loud but I enjoyed my lunch and I would plan on going back.

Three friends went for lunch and we each enjoyed our food; I had a delicious quiche and tossed salad; my one friend had pulled pork, which he said was very good and the other friend had a chicken salad which she said tasted good (it looked good too). However, the good food and fine service were marred by too much... More

Please update your menu. Make it simpler, fresher. Unfortunately we do not come here for the food. We love the location, the decor, the feel and the people. Great staff. The food... not so much. We have been here on many occasions. The food is very average. At times too complicated. Last week I had the salmon cakes and I... More

a seasonally changing menu with diverse options and preparations out of the ordinary make this a go to restaurant. I visited at lunch times and for dinners with one or two friends and with a large group and the food is very good and the service attentive. The dessert array near the entrance may grab your attention and if you... More
