“Excellent food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

This is a very quaint restaurant off of the beaten path of Hwy 7 on the way to Mt. Rainier. The atmosphere is very cozy and the staff are very polite and attentive. You don't feel like you are rushed in any way. Enjoy your meal and top it off with coffee and delicious dessert. I like to go with my girlfriends for birthdays and for special occasions with my husband.

“An elegant surprise...”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

As we walked toward the entrance, I had the wonderful feeling we had arrived at a neighbor's front door for a cozy dinner. Inside, it was decked out with linen and cloth napkins on the table a nice formal look; the service was excellent. Yes, the menu was spendy, but the meal was worth the price. How nice to have a classy restaurant in our off beat area. It's worth finding and trying out,you won't be sorry that you did.

“Good food, a little spendy.”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

This restaurant is kind of off the beaten track....near other things, but on a side street that you would not expect it to be. It's a good option if you are trying to get away from all of the fast food spots in the area. It was a nice day, so we sat outside. It was pretty noisy, however, as it it near a busy street and not especially scenic. The staff was welcoming but the service was a little slow that day. Good food, but a little pricey. ($10 for a grilled cheese sandwich and $2.50 for a lemonade)
