We recently took friends to this establishment, as a thank you for staying with them, at the end of our trip. Located in a beautiful Depression-era stone building, with a patio area overlooking the Red River and a wildlife-filled park, we had a excellent meal to end our vacation. The menu is a curious mixture of fine dining dishes and... More

Interesting appetizers and mains - we had hog wings (think good bar-b-que), blueberry-basil hummus plate (sounds weird, tastes great) and gravlox - served with preserved lemon and cream cheese on baguette slices. We ate outside on a large patio, with a nice view of the Red River and surrounding park. Watch out for the bees - it was windy, so... More

As always, potentially delightful experience waylayed. It's just the nicest patio in town. Today the staff was lovely. As always, food issues. And a chef that told the manager she COULD NOT comp the crunchy rice and over cooked fish, but would comp a burger as replacement. Come on. How does that make sense and WHO ASKED THE COOK??!!

Sea bass was overcooked and the chef would not comp. (Aparantly, the manager answers to the chef, and the chef would not back down. ) It was recommended that we not talk to chef because he has a temper. The wait staff was very apologetic, and were very good.

Great place to sit down and enjoy a great view of the river from their dining area. Waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and was on the ball throughout the evening. Great place to take your date to enjoy a quiet evening for two.

Thank Joshua_olson2009
