“Lots of fun”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

Seating can be a bit limited if you have more than two people but the community table in the middle is fine. Order the mushroom tart - try the mussels. The food is delicious and meant to be shared. You can get wine in a tasting glass ,a regular glass, or by the bottle. The selection is interesting and not things that you would normally have heard of.
Save room for dessert

“Fantastic”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

The tarts (flatbread pizzas if you will) are amazing as are the mussels. Would definitely return. Quaint atmosphere with limited seating on first come first serve basis so expect a wait on most nights. A bit pricey, but location, service and food quality makes it worthwhile.

“Great casual but special dining”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Great wine selection, excellent flat breads -- add a salad, and it makes for a wonderful dinner! As a solo female business traveler, I have always felt both welcome and comfortable dining there alone.

“Great flatbread pizzas”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Three of us went here for dinner during the Christmas holidays. Each of us had a different type of flatbread and each was excellent. Helpful servers. We highly recommend!

“Afternoon Delight!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

The food and wine were just what we needed- it was fantastic. It was mid afternoon on New Year's Eve. We didn't want to eat a lot, but needed something since we had a later dinner reservation. Every time we wanted to eat here in the past, it was packed...this time a table cleared out just as we walked in...timing was perfect. It is a small room, noisy, but quaint and intimate. We had a meet samplier and a bottle of 20 Rows, a Cabernet from CA. I highly recommend it!
