Bistro style restaurant with a very creative chef team and the best wine and cocktail selection in the city. Get one of their weekly specials which always show the talent of their kitchen. Special wine tastings the third Thursday of every month.

The food here is very good. The menu has a few staples that are always there when I visit, but they do add different items from time to time. You can choose small plates or medium plates.

Small intimate place. Love the seasonal menu and wine selection. I have yet to have a wine I didn't like here. The servers and cooks are very personal and make great pairing recommendations. I wish it was bigger and on the west side of town!

Wow, just wow. The service was outstanding, and the food was wonderful. There was a nice crowd of folks enjoying a Wednesday evening meal when I visited. I had a half salad, a mid-size bite, and a dessert. it was great. I will definitely go back if ever in the area!

We eat there almost weekly, have staged group events there, and attended their excellent wine class at their Fork University. Food is always really excellent in design, flavor, portion and choices. Wines are on the walls and can be bought at non- restaurant prices and served at your table. Great variety - and Randy and Betsy know how to pick... More

Great food and great atmosphere. Try the tuna and Napoleon desert. They were both outstanding. Like the fact they have an interesting wine selection.

What a wonderful surprise to find such a great dining experience hidden behind the Lexus dealership. The wines were excellent and the meal superb. Must save room for dessert!

I did have a good salad here but my Iced Tea tasted really funny. I thought it might be some fancy blend that I would like to avoid in the future so I asked "what type of iced tea"? Response - Not sure, it comes out of the gun. What type of 'gourmet" place serves iced tea on tap?? The... More
