“Delicious Moroccan-mediterranean style food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2011

Found this by chance, service was very welcoming and charming. Food was delicious. We had hummus to start which was excellent, followed by seafood tagine and chicken curry both extremely fresh and tasty. Finished up with ginger cheesecake, yum! And very good value.

“jewel box with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2011

Very small, intimate restaurant with Mediterranean decor - great wait staff, really great - and food was tremendous! We enjoyed the wild boar sausage with ravioli, the appetizer dish with variety of Mediterranean items, the osso bucco and bottle of great wine! Glad we had made reservations because it was small and busy! Thank you for a wonderful dinner!

“So Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2010

Love this place! Great vegetarian options. We generally start with the mezza plate, then the veggie tagine for two as our main course. The panna cotta is amazing, as are all of their desserts. Everything is exceptionally flavorful and presented elegantly. Try to go early in the week. Friday and Saturday evenings are very busy, so the tiny restaurant gets cramped and loud for parties of two.

“Cute Restaurant, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2010

We visited this small restaurant for the first time. The service is excellent. We thought the food was interesting but both felt that we would order something different if we went back again. I had the elk. It was a bit tough, but the sauce and side dishes were great. My husband had the lamb oso buco. Again, the sauce was very good but the lamb itself was not outstanding. Both of us felt that one of their curries or more stewy type dishes might be better. The chef clearly has an imagination. We would go back but would select something different next time. We brought our own wine but they did not charge corkage (although their menu said there was a $12 corkage fee).
