I had the opportunity to eat here during a business trip. I am not a fancy, cutting edge, hipster so I was more than apprehensive when I saw their website and read several reviews. Don't get me wrong, the reviews were great but the menu required me to hire a translator! I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The decor... More

I have followed this chef since she was at the Checkerberry Inn a few years ago. She has gone from excellent to outstanding. We were visiting the Goshen area on a short vacation, and the staff were good enough to squeeze us in on an early seating. Even though it was a busy night, the food was perfect. I highly... More

A surprisingly good and trendy spot in the little town of Goshen. Food is always excellent. Sometimes slower as each dish seems to be prepared fresh, but worth the wait.

Haven't been in a few years and delighted that menu was changed missed some of the older items but enjoyed trying the new ones. Be prepared if you are a big eater you will need to order a few dishes and at around $10 per plate choose wisely. We enjoyed sharing the foods so had quite a few different items... More

Visited here with friends and found a very popular local spot. We were there on Goshen's First Friday. Lots of people enjoying the beautiful downtown area. I ordered the crab cakes and they were delicious!

Love this place. Great menu with lots of unique choices. So much more I want to try. Quiet environment and tasty drinks. A big overpriced menu but worth a try.

Dining at Kelly Jae's is not to be missed. Kelly's cocktails are imaginative, mixed with the best ingredients available. I'm especially partial to her pomegranate martini and French 75. The food is exquisite, the service impeccable, the wine list excellent. Kelly herself is usually present, greeting guests and checking to be sure that everything meets her high standards. This is...

Another small town gem. If you are passing thru the area at dinner time, stop here. Be aware that they close early. I had the small plates of smoked salmon with flat bread, coconut shrimp, and grilled crostini. They have a nice small plate selection (tapas) for sharing and an some nice entrees. It's a European dining experience (except for... More
