Went once before and thought it was very good, went back and food did not taste fresh at all. Definitely recommend going for lunch rather than dinner. From what I could tell, menu was the same as are the portions but the price is dramatically cheaper.

Not great food, but good. Great service, would have been awesome if offered full bar. Very small, reservations suggested.

Six of us had reservations here on a Friday night prior to a musical event at the Princeton Chapel. The restaurant was full, but the service was prompt, friendly, attentive, and accommodating. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

In my experience BYOB restaurants always seem to have a fun happy buzz which emanates across the room - almost makes you feel like you're at a party where everyone is having a great time - that is the atmosphere I'm describing here - and no ridiculous cork fee either! The food was fantastically flavorful - I had a wild... More

Good idea to make a reservation at least a few days in advance. We went on a Saturday night, late dinner for two and we still had a short wait. BYOB and the food is awesome! I had a special, salmon stuffed with shrimp on a bad of asparagus with a rich mustard sauce. They also offer gluten free pasta!... More

Stopped in for dinner in August on a Friday night, assumed we need a reservation, walked in and the place was empty. Not sure why, the food was great. Waitress seemed a little ill prepared, maybe her first night? We brought a bottle of wine, and started with a ceaser salad and mixed green salad, the mixed green was excellent!... More

Fruit flambé made right at your table! Excellent cappuccino! Every dish looked beautiful & tasted amazing! Tiramisu is phenomenal! Wine selection is very nice. Staff is very friendly & professional. Fine dining experience that is affordable.

Decent BYOB in Princeton, average prices and service, but very loud when crowded. Menu is good, with nightly specials, but service could be improved and any sound dampening material on the walls or ceiling would vastly improve this restaurant.
