“Surprisingly delicious.”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Fun, friendly, and yet, very professional. Beautiful old style bar, with great young, hip, smart bartender. We sat outside and ate after having generous drinks and interesting conversation with the brainy cool young bar keep. The service inside and out was perfect. Loved it.

“Delicious”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

This restaurant was a perk of staying at The Talbott, the food was incredible. I would have taken a cab from across the city to dine here!
