“Best of the best within a day's drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Small, but not too small, and very comfortable. The menu is not so large it is cumbersome and not so small it doesn't cater to a wide variety of tastes. Service is personal and unrushed but not overbearing. Quality of the fare is exceptional. We moved into the local area from the Washington DC area on retirement thinking that we would have at least a one hour ride for a high-end dinner. Definitely not the case. The owner/chef is very approachable and easy to talk with, on his food or the local politics. As an aside, the owner is also very active in the local community, and apparently not just for personal gain.

“Ultra Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Loved the food, the seafood taco appetizer is great. Everything was fresh and gourmet quality. The porch area is wonderful when the weather permits outside dining.

Dislikes was that the dining area is small, crowded, not conducive to a private, romantic experience. Bar area is very small, seats only about 6 people.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and the featured entree was crispy roast duck. WONDERFUL, and plentiful as usual. Ambiance seated next to the Christmas tree by front bay window off the porch, snow on the ground. excellent wine, excellent food AND service; what more could you ask for?

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This place is amazing. The service is awesome. The food, even the most simple preparations, is delicious. Very fresh. I am planning to go back to Berkeley Springs in a few months just to eat here again!

“A five star restaurant shines bright in Berkeley Springs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

This little gem definitely has everything you would look for in DC Metro area (where I live) when looking for a great meal. Damian and Betsy (chef, hostess and owners) put everything into the mood, ambiance, creative menu selections, wine and the results are consistently amazing. I have been coming here for many years and I can recommend it for couples, groups, friends to enjoy. The porch in the summer is the best seat in the house. If you are passing through, going for the spas up there, whatever - make sure you include time for a great meal. Cute little bar area as well where you will surely run into a few locals to chat with.
