I find this place to be the most expensive in the area without a good reason to be so. If you appreciate spending money to tell your friends that you ate here then go for it!

This is truly a wonderful restaurant. Food is delicious. I had a pork porterhouse. Flavorful and juicy. Salmon was wonderful, as was the steak. Seasonal Farm fresh cuisine. Wait staff was very attentive and it was a BYOB. The interior was warm and welcoming. Not to be missed. You will be back I am sure.

Amazing meals great service. I've had the chefs clam dish which he won best of Chester county, braised short ribs and a fish dish. Every dish was so scrumptious. Wish I had leftovers! This little farm to table BYOB is so worth the visit!

This restaurant is a very welcome presence in a town crowded with pizza places and Italian restaurants. As a vegetarian I appreciate a chef that can devise a dish that is interesting and receptive to customer wishes. In other words, not the same old "We can give you salad, or vegetables over pasta" offer. Very well prepared food done with... More

I ordered the Grilled Chicken & Prosciutto Sandwich without the Prosciutto. I would definitely order this sandwich again. My husband ordered the 8 oz. Angus Beef Burger and... More

Not a fan. Plenty of my friends are. Can't figure out why they are enamored with this place. This is a little BYO in an otherwise depressed, industrial downtown area. It gets reviewed highly so the chef and staff seem to inhale their own press. The food is surely good, but not enough to warrant the oddly snooty, aloof service.... More
