This is the first time we've been here. Service was excellent and fast. The food was delicious and the waiter was very friendly.

This is a local favorite and a must if looking for an excellent restaurant for lunch. The butternut squash curry soup is our favorite. Everything we've ordered has always been fresh and delicious. Don't go if you're in a hurry. The food and atmosphere deserve that you are relaxed and focused, so you can take it all in. Also, there... More

The food here is wonderful. The location is traditional. The atmosphere is lively. The lunch trade is brisk. Patrons are loyal and confident that they will enjoy a great meal. Therefore, the establishment is highly valued by the community. However, the noise level, the see-and-be seen vibe, and pitch and energy of the crowd tends to discourage those who seek... More

The restaurant is small so it's important to arrive early with your entire party to secure a seat as they won't seat you until everyone has arrived. The food is rich and very flavorful. Prices are on the higher size of lunch places however very well worth the money.

I just attended an event catered by Wild Pear - amazingly yummy food!! Great variety from chicken to pesto pasta to sliders to stuffed mushrooms!! The staff were very friendly and helpful from drinks (water, wine, beer) to assistance with plates & utensils.

I've visited this restaurant several times in the last months and I'm never disappointed! Not only is their food outstanding but so are their mixed drinks. :)

We stopped for lunch. The place was very busy, and, now, we understand why. I had their Kahlua pulled pork sandwich, which juicy, tender and delicious. It came with a wonderful blackberry barbecue sauce that was a nice compliment. My daughter had a coconut curry butternut squash soup, and the wild pear salad. My wife also had that salad, but...

I have lunch here every couple of months and I haven't had a bad meal in several years of eating here. I'm partial to the quiche and soup of the day. The coconut curry soup is absolutely delicious. It's a very popular spot and you need to allow yourself time to wait for a seat or time your visit wisely... More

A very busy place at lunch time. Best to arrive by 1130 am or have a late lunch. Food is excellent and I have had great service too.

Thank William C
