Went for lunch with a friend. Get there by 12 or you may have to wait. There were many good choices lunch. I had a great fresh turkey sandwich. I really enjoyed my lunch. The dessert choices were great and was also delicious. I recommend for lunch. I'll have to go back again for dinner sometime.

The menu changes monthly. Dishes are unusual and unique. Food is well prepared and very tasty. Service is great, not rushed, well paced. The restaurant is small and comfortable. Great place for a nice evening out. Excellent.

If you're looking for something a little different try this restaurant. Interesting menu and friendly service. A little over priced but always crowded!

The is a quaint family run restaurant with great service, delicious food, and a relaxed atmosphere. We were very pleased with the service and every aspect of our meal. It's on the expensive side, so for us - it was a special treat. But, we also can't think of another restaurant which has a more pleasant atmosphere and such friendly... More

The room is comfortable. The small plates are tasty and there is a wide variety of appetizers. We liked the lamb meatballs. The entrees were good, but I might have preferred more small plates instead of a main course. The desserts were tasty, particularly the sweet corn ice cream. The locally sourced orientation is rare for this area. The prices... More

Had a business meeting over dinner and it was so seamless that the staff and kitchen did everything perfectly. They read our conversation and pauses that the food came out at the exact time it should have. All was prepared perfectly and they even had soft shell crab at the very beginning of its season. Couldn't say anything but positive... More
