The service and setting are very nice. It is a good place for a special occasion, a little pricey but the food is excellent making it worth it.

We ordered oysters, fettuccini, calves liver, soup and salads. It was all very good. Fresh food. Casual home town dining. But almost everything was over $20.00 a plate. We are just not used to that. I would recommend it but not on a regular basis....More

I don't recall a specific "gluten free" menu, but much of the food there is simply prepared, so I don't think having a gluten-free dinner there would too difficult. I would cal ahead to make sure though.
