Just a nice place to go with friends, comfortable, not rushed to leave. Service was reasonable but would recommend reservations for six or more people. Often go with ten to twelve friends. Dinner is also very good and always go near Xmas. Highly recommend.

Went there with my parents on a Saturday night and each of us had a different meal. All of them were well presented, vegetables just tender, and all delicious. It appears to be a small middle of the road place from the outside, but totally knocks you over with the food. I highly recommend it. I skipped the appetizer so... More

The food is always consistent!! They are accommodating to dietary needs, which I personally appreciate. Love the open concept, so I can see everything, including the cleanliness of the space :)

I really enjoyed our lunch there. The server was very nice and the meal was delicious! I am a big supporter of going to local businesses instead of franchises. This little bistro is a hidden gem with a downhome feel.

I was a bit disappointed after reading the great reviews. My sweet open faced chicken was okay but not great. The creamy mushroom soup was also just okay and came out still bubbling from the microwave...and then the blueberry pie (again, just okay) came out so hot from the microwave that I nearly burned my mouth. In my experience, this... More

A restaurant that appeals to the healthy side of dining. Food prepared where guests can see the chef at work. Good open hours.

This quaint bistro has a varied menu serving made to order dishes. I have allergies and the server and chef were attentive to that fact by showing me safe options. We had appetizer of tomato, cheddar and broccoli soup with warm home made biscuits which were delicious! One of us had the stuffed atlantic salmon and the other had beef... More

We went for a family lunch a short time ago and found the meal adequate. However, it must have been a bad day for our server. She was not what you might call cordial, but rather cold, and a tad sarcastic. I left thinking this lady is not happy with this career. But, as I said, maybe she was having... More

This place is a good option for above average food at above average prices. The steak was nice, and the food overall was decent. If you're looking for a restaurant that is a little classier than most, this is a good choice. With that said, I would not visit here regularly. The prices are just a bit too high to... More
