We found that although the food was presented well, we thought everything just tasted "okay." Even the house-made pasta dishes didn't impress.

The ambiance was nice, and the staff was personable and attentive, but the food lacked any depth of flavor and was completely forgettable - certainly for the price.

Would not come back.

Was so excited to go here on our visit after many locals recommended. The service was ao upsetting. No one asked us if we needed anything until about 20 minutes after being seated. Then we asked for a recommendation for bubbles and were led to try this white wine that was either spoiled or just really bad. When we asked what we should do if we couldnt drink the wine (which we NEVER do) we were told "thats not my call"...and ignored completely after. Thank goodness a male waiter saw no one was helping us after half an hour and picked up our table. He brought us a new bottle of bubbly that was much better. We ordered the kale salad and sausage. Sausage was great, kale salad tasted like DIRT. and we eat kale multiple times daily. Very upsetting as we were hoping to love this place.

Rolf and Daughters (R.A.D.) was and is a very pleasant surprise. Staff very helpful in talking through the menu. Set up with top half of menu listing smaller plates (about a dozen) to share and the bottom half of the menu listing larger plates (about six). Then additionally they have three to four specials each night. The larger plates and specials were excellent but actually the smaller, shareable plates were our favorite. Fascinating seasoning plus combo of ingredients. Hard to put this creative menu into a slot. Just great food that will surprise you. BTW, wonderful place to eat either inside or outside; we chose outside and found it quite comfortable.

I’ve gone here since it opened. The food is fantastic. And it’s my least favorite place to go in town. The owner wants to make money. It is always full of drunk tourists. It has no feel of the town I know and love. I’ve finally come to understand it’s true meaning and it’s not for me. Take it to Some soulless place like nyc or Los Angeles.

Family went for birthday dinner. The waitress was excellent she gave us the menu and she had to explain what the dishes were. We tried 4 of the appitizers and selected our main courses. We choose pork chop, chicken, risotto and pasta. When the appitizers came we shared and tried them all. I was not fond of the flava beans but the new potato salad was fantastic. The main courses came and everything was amazing. The pork chop was perfect, moist and delicious. The 1/2 chicken was great. My son thought it needed just a dash of salt but otherwise was great. The pasta and claim were great and risotto was done perfectly
All in all it was delicioud
