Reservation is highly recommended. Great menu, fun cocktails and wines by the glass offered notable choices. Sharing was recommended which allowed us to sample the eclectic menu. The special appetizer was the best stuffed squash flowers I have ever had...and I’ve had many! Scallops, our...More

Great food and not to be missed! You will need a reservation regardless of the day—we showed up on a Saturday afternoon on a holiday weekend and the wait was easily an hour. If you can get in, don’t miss out on the biscuit and...More
