I love everything about this place. Food is fresh and outstanding. Be prepared to wait, but it is worth the wait. Note: only 1 gluten free option. They don't vary from the menu, no substitutions. No free refill on coffee :(

My first visit to the bistro. Met a friend for a 12:30 Lunch. Entered through the back parking lot, although that may be the only way to enter. There a lot of stairs just to get up to the dinning area of this multi level...More

We were very pleased when we walked into the little house that had an Alice and wonderland feel. Everything was unique including the food. You can tell the chefs make art with their food but it's homey and fill in just like good old diner...More
