It's ok. Been several times and each time the food was bland. The atmosphere is great. The service was good, just the food was lacking for me.

This is our favorite restaurant! Peter consistently serves up excellent dishes with seasonal twists. He often comes from the kitchen to visit with his dinner guests. A hidden gem.

First time to try this restaurant. Wonderful. Tuna perfect with a delicious sauce. Relaxed but elegant. Service was great and the owner stopped several times to check on our table.

Food was good and the service was great! Nice place to meet friends for lunch! You will find entrees here that are not available in other restaurants. I had pork loin with red cabbage, potatoes and White Russian ice cream for dessert! Delicious!
