“New restaurant in town.”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

The former chef of Portofinos on the Wharf opened a small and intimate restaurant that serves absolutely excellent food. The seating is very limited so the owner added some tables outside in the courtyard and has lighting to make it very charming. There are a range of items on the menu and the staff is very friendly and competent.

“An absolute MUST!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

What a great restaurant. Unbelievable lunch. Cannot wait to go back for dinner. Outdoor seating available. Very attentive service from Chris, our waitperson. Each dish that arrived at our table was photographable. The ingredients are fresh and prepared to create exquisite taste. Their hours are easy.. M-S 11-3 lunch and 5-10 dinner. This should be a regular spot for everyone. Just great food.!

“Miss this one”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Bistro has nice outdoor seating except for the flies.Thats when the good stops.Our waiter had no clue. Chicken marsala and picatta tasted and looked like bad frozen dinner.Small even for lunch and tasteless.When we told the waiter after very very long wait.he could have cared less.Special was ok.I had cannelloni just ok.(spinach&chicken)salad wet and no flover.This was not worth the trip to Georgetown.They might have a different chief at night?
