Amazing food, excellent service, great date night restaurant.

Cheese plate and Short ribs outstanding.
Husband's pork special phenomenal
Carrot cake good, carrot cake cream flavored ice cream not so good.

Will come again very soon. I want to try the salmon and the gnocchi next.

We had not been to Flea Street Cafe in several years and were very excited to find it had improved even over its already high standards. Since it is a little out of the way, we tend to forget about it. The waiter was very attentive & helpful, but not hoovering. His recommendations for locally grown salads and side dishes were perfect and the entrées were both beautifully presented and exquisite. We had the duck and sea bass and were only disappointed that we didn't have room for desert - the surrounding tables were certainly enjoying theirs!

We will go back again soon & so should you!

I've been to Flea Street several times and always enjoyed it. JZ Cool knows how to run a restaurant. The menu always includes local, organic ingredients and the food is innovative.

I love that this restaurant features the freshest and organic quality produce from farms in the area. I love that I'm helping to support local farmers. The food was amazing. I ordered all the specials of the day. Nettle soup (sort of like a arugula with a lemony twist). Amazing lamb! So tender and cooked perfectly at medium rare. My husband had the risotto and it was equally delicious. The owner of the restaurant came by our table - very sweet and friendly to see how we loved the food. She told us that she's got the best chefs and complimented on how hard they work on their menu and create amazing food! Service was good. Wine a bit on the expensive side- even for a glass, so if you order it, just expect. Definitely a mark up there. Because of the high price...but really worth it food...we will be back mainly for special occasions. Great simple but elegant decor. The food makes it so worthwhile. Really savor it!

This place has organic, healthy, quality ingredients and meals. I really love coming here for special occasions because it really is a treat. (You do have to pay for the extra quality though - which is definitely worth it on occasion)
