We arrived late on a Saturday night and they were able to fit us in. A lovely, well prepared meal. Good (but not great) service.

This is a cozy, beautiful and intimate place for creative and delicious food. Dress casual or fancy if you'd like. The people are welcoming and the place is beautiful and rustic. This is one of my "must-stop" places while in OGT.
