The restaurant is lovely; the staff is friendly, courteous and efficient and the food was fresh, local, innovative and scrumptious. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. One of the diners said that the experience was close dining at the French Laundry in Napa.

It's a marvelous venue with fantastic food and wine! But you may need a second mortgage when the bill comes.

Great food, perfect service. Loved the prix fixe 4 (plus amuse bouche) course dinner with wine pairings. We sat on the porch along the river. Gorgeous.
