We go to this eclectic restaurant every week. We love the food, wine and the drinks.

Greg, the bartender, supreme, will mix you a perfect martini -any kind you request.

And Jill, the hostess, greets us warmly and certainly makes sure that we have everything we need.

To the chef: I am the 1.5 stuffed porcini mushroom person - love it!

Loved this quaint restaurant. It's location isn't the greatest otherwise I think it would be a huge hit in the area...I live here and didn't know about it until now (been open over a year)
Anyway, fabulous food! Very gourmet, but not weird. Really good flavors...Great wine list. Had a super cold, refreshing cosmo martini. Perfect. Ambiance is dark and romantic but also colorful and fun. (does that make sense?) The only thing someone might find as a negative is their portions aren't huge. It's not Claim Jumpers portions for sure. We ordered four appetizers and split them between the two of us. The shrimp with lobster risotto was to die for! Petite bites filet mignon with bre cheese was mmmmmm...
Crab cakes, not bready, all crab meat...so clean and refreshing tasting. Calamari stuffed with crab was good but my least favorite of the four. Oh and their bread is sooooo good. :)
We will return and hope you try it out too...
