Warm atmosphere and staff. Food was delish, hot and do get the truffle fries. Cozy with a touch of Europe

Decor was predictable and functional, food was not too far off that mark. Nothing too creative / imaginative, expected quality and flavors.

Small and intimate little bistro with gourmet type lunch items. I had a good vichyssoise and salad. My companion had a Reuben, a vey large portion. There is a bar. Good place to have lunch.

This delightful place was recommended to us, by the hop-on trolley driver. We found it romantic! Lunch was delicious. We had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly! They have local beer but not on draft.

The menu changes often with seasonal ingredients and they have daily specials. The vegetarian plate is always delicious as are the desserts. Service is impeccable! The food is divine.
