Nice place. We like this restaurant because we believe they have fresh vegetables and other food. They also have special dish as well as one to take home when you order one, occasionally.

Great menu where even "picky" eaters will find something healthy to enjoy. They offer delicious soups that rival homemade. Service is warm and friendly.

Colleague and I dined at this restaurant while staying at the nearby Renaissance Hotel. Service was good; food was excellent, price a bit on the high side. Would recommend.

Had a lovely lunch here with family before going to the botanic gardens. The menu was excellent and the chef was able to satisfy my vegan granddaughter. Good place for a business lunch too.

Great food and service! A little pricey, but overall it's worth it. Can be noisey at peak hours. It's obvious that the chef takes great care of the menu & options. Save room for dessert!

With a commitment to farm to table freshness and grass fed meats, this restaurant exudes flavor and creativity. An ever changing simple menu gives wonderful choices including a fabulous hamburger. Lunch, dinner, friends, date night, family are all great. My one suggestion is to sit in the back room if you do not like noise in the evening. It can... More

I ordered the Cobb salad, which was very average. The chicken was pretty bland, and mixed greens would have been nice. My husband ordered the whitefish, which he said was okay, but was a rather small portion. My mother ordered the tuna melt, which was the best of the three meals...heaping mounds of tuna covered with melted cheese over an... More

My daughter & I had dinner here while staying nearby. We began with excellent craft cocktails, split an appetizer salad, and moved on to very well prepared and delicious entrees. Our split appetizer of prosciutto & melon with light salad was served on individual plates and was fresh. My daughter enjoyed duck with spinach, wild rice and a fig sauce... More

They are big on omelettes and benedicts...everything tastes fresh and well-made, coffee great. Noise is a bit of an issue, and very assertive busboy and waitress continuously interrupting our conversation was definitely bothersome (not just leaning in to pour, but interrupting conversation each time with a question - do not come if you want to converse here). They obviously want... More
