We had a great dinner conversation made more convivial by good service and a decent wine list. If we could have eaten family style we could have ordered fewer dishes and taken less home. So much good food!

Just thinking about the surf and turf meals I’ve had here makes my mouth water. If I could give it more stars I would. Don’t let the plain exterior of the house deter you from trying it because inside is a cozy dining area; attentive,...More

This is a great date night place. I was told to get a reservation but forgot. So it was a long wait although tables stayed empty. They probably should revise their reservation policy - maybe no reservations or only reservations or at least get better...More
