I debated whether to give 3 or 4 stars to this restaurant. While the food was awesome, we all came away still very hungry and had to stop by a DQ on the way home! I wish the wait staff had mentioned that the servings were tiny - we would have ordered 5 or 6 more, although that might have busted the wallet.

I will keep it in mind if I want a nice, expensive happy hour place. This would be pefect. Nibble on their 'entrees' while sipping a wine flight. Food did taste great, but for the price, there are better options for dinner and wine.

Cool place. Went with 3 colleagues. Menu looks good. I ordered a chowder that was just wonderful. But really, 5.50 for a small cup of soup. I just expected more. Nice spinach salad but was never offered cracked pepper. Sounds petty, but if you are going to charge those prices, need those adders. I ordered iced tea and literally had to ask for lemon 4xs...and they were not crowded. Need to fix this.

My wife had the Roasted Local Chicken Breast with red pepper-almond pesto,smoked guanciale, braised swiss chard and wheatberry pilaf for a laughably inexpensive $13.And I had the Bistro Strip Steak over red pepper polenta and brocolinni for $15. 2 drinks each and we were out of the door for $60 plus tip. Be careful walking home.

High priced...excessivly so. The food is good for the most part but the stuffy attitude gets a thumbs down.

Girls' night out - perfect choice!
The menu is varied and very imaginative. Very hard to decide - choose several to share is my best advice. The ceasar salad is excellent and they will had anchovies if asked. The flatbreads are extremely good! Vast selection of wines - as one would expect! Save room for dessert - they have several house made and locally sourced desserts!

Service was EXCELLENT!
