“Good neighborhood venue all the way around”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

3 of us visited this restaurant on a Friday night, with a reservation. We had the restaurant to ourselves initially, but within a half hour, the place was filled. It was still not too loud, no music had started yet. Each of our entrees were done perfectly. Two of us got the special, which was a lamb shank - absolutely tenderly prepared down to the last morsel. Wonderful presentation as well. Our server was relatively new, but went above and beyond doing her best to accommodate us. My husband has celiac's, and she assured him of all his gluten free selections. Will definitely return to this Main Line restaurant.

“Good food and beer in Berwyn”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We ate their last Saturday night and enjoyed it very much. The food was high quality and well executed (don't miss the fig flatbread - really, really good). Service was fast and friendly. Surprisingly, the beer selection was unique and well thought out. I had the Mad Elf, which you rarely see on restaurant beer lists. All in all, it was an enjoyable night out.

“wonderful venue”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Had a long, leisurely dinner with an old friend at this quaint restaurant recently. The menu, while not extensive, offers plenty of variety and nice choices. The staff was attentive, but not obtrusive. We stayed a very long time and never felt pressured to leave. Food was very well prepared and very tasty.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Very well decorated, went on a Friday evening- but it was more like a bar. My kids were super annoyed by the loudness. If you're going with kids, i wouldn't go on a Fri or Sat evening. Might be OK at other times though for kids, not sure.
The food was the biggest letdown, I don't care to cook, but I could have done better. Food is way overpriced for amount and quality.

“desapointed”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Went ther with a friend and we nearly went to the kitchen to see someone... Service was very poor but the waitresse was smiling and plaisant. However, she did not know how to open a bottle of wine. The menu is poor, the foods are just ok. I wonder is this place is owned by professionals ! desapointed...
