“Yum!”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

I went here with a friend who loves Farm-to-table restaurants. The food was great, excellent service, and a nice relaxing atmosphere. Nice wines, too.

“excellent experience”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

reception was very welcoming, servers are knowledgeable, food is off the hook. What more can you ask? Excellent cozy dining experience. Everyone from customers to staff alike seemed to be having a great time. Love this place.

“Cute Restaurant”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Nice inside, prices reasonable, but food just average.
Had the calamari to start and had to try really hard to get past the deep fried breading to taste the dried out calamari and we complained to the waiter and he never tried to make it better, still showed up on the bill. Had the vegetable terrain with goat cheese, tasty, but not worth going back for. Very disappointing.

“Shocked”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Had a reservation for 7pm. Arrived at 6:30. Three people at the bar and it took 15 minutes to get a cocktail. Didnt get seated until 7:40. Sat at table and no one came over for the 15 minutes we sat there. No water, no bread, nothing!! Got up and left

“Still not hot enough”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

2nd time eating here and once again the food is not hot enough. Interesting menu and good waiter (Joe) but food is not hot. Very friendly hostess and staff is anxious to please but have to serve hot food. Maybe need more staff? Coffee and cappuccino were luke warm and didn't have a good flavor. Very noisy when the restaurant is full. Temperature of meals served is a reason not to return.
