This wonderful building restored to be a restaurant features a more bar type atmosphere in the front and a more intimate dinner setting in the back. You can choose which vibe is right for you.

The food is fantastic, with a local produce angle, some of which is grown by the restaurant in their own plot on the same block. Dessert menu is a little sparse/boring but cocktail menu is great, wines look very good and the savory dishes outstanding.

Make sure to ask how the restaurant came into being and where the profits go for a great feel good story.

We had a coupon and decided to try it. High priced but well worth it! Delicious food. Great staff. Nice atmosphere.

The menu is very creative. Combinations that you might not think of seem to work very well. Local ingredients are their signature, but they seem to be reaching farther afield these days.

We've been here twice, and each time had a very nice meal. I found it a little dark in there, but the inside decor (a former fire station) is quite interesting.

Place it a stretch to get to from downtown, but felt good to patronize a place outside of city central. Club sandwich was good but not remarkable. No complaints frOm my party.
