Simply wonderful!

Both our dinners were absolutely perfect: mushroom soup/filet/quinoa beet ravioli(unbelievably delicious)/Moroccan pork/desserts. The flavorings and textures of each dish were fantastic and made for a wonderful dining experience!

Farm to table dream food! This establishment has three sections: strictly bar area, bar area with cozy tables, and an area with just tables. The ambiance is relaxing and intimate. The food is so divine I think about it and miss it like a dear friend. The cocktails are sublime and are classic cocktails with an original twist (like a... More

Date night with my wife (AKA - Best friend)Food was exceptional and the service was awesome. Had the Chef's Monthly special menu with the wine pairings. All three courses were well above expectations. Winter Soup, Beet Ravioli, Swordfish, perfectly done medium pork tenderloin, creme brulee and apple crisp!!! Corner table, perfect ambiance. Will be back again soon!

Had supper with a friend here Saturday 12/12/15 to celebrate a Birthday. Upon arrival we had to wait about 5 minutes for the Hostess to show up. Not a big deal, she was helping seat somebody upstairs when we came in. She greeted us with a nice smile and we were escorted upstairs to our table. We were there for... More

We visited this little gem of a Restaurant after being at the DCU center to see an early performance of Toruk - The First Flight. The menu was varied and pleased each of the four of us. The wait staff was very helpful and even though we were early seated us right away. We would certainly visit again.

Definitely worth a visit if looking for an upscale, modern place to grab a drink or bite In the worcester area. The niche hospitality group has done a wonderful job of introducing great restaurants and establishments to the city....this being one of them!

Drinks came arrived, very little wait. Their music could have been lowered but we didn't need to raise our voices. Food presentation was very good. Large plates... More
