I made reservations here thinking that it was a higher end Italian restaurant, and was slightly surprised by the menu. My sister and I arrived a little early and sat at the bar a few minutes. The ambiance was lovely and the crowd sedate. No horribly loud music to interrupt conversation. That was a blessing. The very knowledgeable bartender recommended a sauvignon blanc that was excellent. We were seated in a comfortable booth and attended by a very personable and proficient waiter, Adam. When we asked to split the starter and salad, there was not even a hint of hesitation on his part. We chose the gnocchi small plate, which was excellent with sage butter sauce and ribbons of zucchini and squash and the duck confit salad with small bits of delicious duck, shaved brussels, blue cheese, chunks of Parmesan, in other words, delightful. The special was a Arctic char (which is a good environmental choice for many reasons) with goat cheese infused polenta, grilled asparagus and haricot vert . It all sounded wonderful, except that I'm not a fan of polenta. Adam then went to confer with the chefs as to what would be a proper alternative and came back with the mushroom risotto. Excellent. My sister ordered the bouillabaisse which was loaded with giant shrimp, scallops, etc. and was also excellent. We shared the apple tart for dessert, and had to take home much of our dinners, as we of course had ordered too much. But the atmosphere was perfect for talking, catching up, enjoying our food and wine and being waited on by a very experienced waiter, who was helpful, friendly and offered just enough service and suggestions.
