This is my favorite restaurant in Port Washington. Chef Karen and her husband, Peter, have created a real gem. The food is thoughtful, creative and constantly evolving. While there are some wonderful staples on the menu, the Chef is always tinkering with things as the seasons and available ingredients change -- she never lets it get boring. The restaurant space...

Just tried the Italian tasting menu and it was fantastic. Everything is freshly prepared by the chef, Karen. She and her husband work tirelessly to make it a great and creative dining experience

Really like the food here. A great menu, numerous choices, all prepared to perfection. Chef is very creative, specials all the time, but the basic menu if wonderful. Chef's husband is the bartender and Wine Steward. His drinks and wine choices are excellent. A favorite spot.

This place should not be missed. Everything is fantastic. You can't go wrong with any choice. Small restaurant so make a reservation a few weeks before.

This is a comfortable place and the food is very good. Not trying to be creative or imaginative, all the dishes were delicious.

I've lived in Port for almost 8 years and never knew this place was here. How can that be? Well, the secret is out. It's perfect for when you want really good food in a semi-quiet setting. You can actually have a conversation with others without having to shout over music or people sitting on top of you. Wine was... More

What a nice surprise to find this little restaurant in Port Washington. 3 couples and we all had different dishes. All were good from beginning to the end. Only draw back there was a big party going on so we had a hard time hearing each other. Maybe they should have told us that when we made the reservation.Next time... More

It's very challenging for a chef to remain consistent and true to their roots, but at the same time venture into new taste experiences using different high quality cuts of meat, varieties of fish and fresh produce.
