Wow wow wow! We came for our anniversary and what a culinary feast! We started with charred octopus app and the Washington st cheese- best octopus we have had (outside if Greece) and the cheese that came with a strawberry jam and honey - yum. We also got fresh bread with butter with squash and cilantro was just like nothing we have ever had before. Entree: I got the catch of the day: black bass in a light smoked tomato sauce with thin sliced veggies on top and 2 amazing handmade ravioli with amazing cheese which was just the best. Hubby got pork chop which he thoroughly enjoyed and left nothing remaining. Dessert: 3 scoops of ice cream! The basil,Rocky road and mint choc chip. What a way to celebrate our anniversary. Top notch service and the owners are the nicest, friendliest people we've met. Need to make our reservations for next month!

Pleasantly surprised by first visit to ATH. Heard a lot about it and was hoping not to be disappointed - we were not! Many specials to compliment the main menu. Chorizo Pizza with fried egg was nice but the rabbit special was out of this world. Lamb special excellent as well. Service very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Tables a little small but cozy enough. While not cheap, we will definitely go back to this BYO.

No doubt about it, A Tout Heure is a wonderful experience. Had winning lunch and dinners. Food quality and inventiveness will make you forget about the prices.

This is a gem of a restaurant that emphasizes fresh, locally sourced ingredients in a comfortable open atmosphere. The flavor combinations, ingredients and spices are always interesting but never over-the-top. It's possible to order small exquisite 'bites', more substantial 'starters' as well as full entrees. ATH serves both lunch and dinner - a great place to take a breath in the middle of the workday. I've never been disappointed with the food ( you can just close your eyes point at the menu and have a fabulous meal) but my favorite dish is Kara's mussel pot - pure seafood heaven!

We both had Salad:grilled jerusalem artichoke salad with arugula, black olives, and shaved red onion, and a smokey mustard-sherry vinaigrette which I thought was made with WAY TOO MUCH mustard. We both had Entree: pan seared scallops, over a buttery jerusalem artichoke mash, with a minced putanesca topping (preserved garden tomatoes, capers, olives, and white anchovies) - I guess i didn't realized that perserved would mean it tasted OLD. I had to scrape this topping off and eat the scallops plain. Would not recommend to anyone since it is very high priced for the less than excellent quality in my view
