I have had a perfect meal every time I have eaten here, about 10 times. Food is excellent, so is the service, atmosphere, etc. It's our favorite restaurant in town, by far. You just can't go wrong. The bouillabaisse is the best anywhere, especially when ordered with the focaccia to sop up the stupendous sauce. TRY it.

Dining is upstairs in a warm paneled dining room with just the right ambience and noise level- like a babbling brook, soothing and peaceful. Service was prompt and cheerful without being annoying. The crab cakes were full of crab and certainly on the "we'll tease your palate without stuffing you before dinner" side. The lobster bisque was perhaps had a little too much bouillon flavor but was overall pleasing with a lump of lobster and cup sized to leave plenty of room for dinner. The orchard green martini was a little light on the liquor but was fab and full flavored. Mains were generous, the cowboy steak was huge and bursting with flavor. My duck dish had two leg/thighs, but would have been even better if it had been breast. Potato au gratin wasn't a highlight with the filet. Overall this is probably a 4 1/2 but the service makes it a five
