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

My husband and I have birthdays exactly one week apart. We try to find a very nice restaurant to celebrate both of our birthdays. We went to this restaurant for lunch today and it was an excellent experience. The food was excellent, the prices at lunch are very reasonable, and the service was smooth and efficient. Knowing it was our... More

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

The table is too small for four of us. We had to put our red wine, white wine and Pellegrino on the floor when the bread and appetizers came. The catch-of-the-day was mahi mahi, which was tasteless. The sauce with beans was watery like soup. My husband's roast chicken tasted good but the portion was small for $34. The place... More

It is a BYOB which I do not normally frequent ,however it looked great and I was not disappointed. The service was outstanding. The food very good and unique. We had the pea salad to start, it was unusual, but I recommend giving it a try. Mussel dishes are amazing, we had the Blue Cheese Bacon Mussels, wow, I would... More
