I say hidden gem because if we weren't given this restaurant as a recommendation and put it into our GPS...we wouldn't have found it. We arrived at 6pm Friday night, private parking, cute cozy appearance. We tried to make reservations but they only take reservations for 6 or more, but we had no problem getting the table we wanted. The bar was full of locals, the baseball game was on the TV and everyone looked like they were having a great time. We ordered a bottle of Cabernet (all reasonably priced) they also have an extensive Martini list. Our waitress was very knowledgable (she has been a waitress there for 12 years), the menu had just changed (they change the menu 4x per year), we started with the stuffed baked potato (not the real name but same idea) it was stuffed with sauerkraut, kielbasa and a horseradish sauce and a harvest pie of sorts and both were great. Then she brought bread and whipped butter which was yummy! We ordered the filet with asparagus accompanied by a French toast underneath that was unbelievably different and the veal dish with asparagus and kale which was equally wonderful. We finished with the peanut butter pie which was the best peanut butter pie we ever ate! Dress code was kind of whatever, some people came right from work, some had jeans but overall the atmosphere was casual and homey. The service was great. The price was great $150 plus tip. So why only 4 stars...I can't believe I am actually saying this...the food was almost too fancy. The quality of the meal was fabulous, the portions fabulous but in every single dish there were tons on ingredients, herbs and flavors...I can't describe it and can't believe I am saying this but when I said something to my hubby he said it was exactly what he was thinking. I think the high quality speaks for itself and less items on the plate and just more of the actual food would be better. We will be back.
