It was a busy place. We had booked a month ahead of time. Reviews were of bad service...Not the night we went, our waiter was helpful. Always weary of U.S. size plates we asked if the chicken was too much for one, he assured us that it was. We ordered a couple of small appies, the chicken and he was right. It was delish and just right for two. The desserts were great. Cardammon rice pudding. Amazing.. and I hate rice pudding. As we left, we had a nice chat with the owner who recommended some other restaurants near our hotel. We did not feel rushed, especially on a busy night, we ate and drank well and it was reasonably priced. WILL GO BACK.

always fun to eat here, food is great, service friendly and knowledgable and the decor is upbeat with a sense of something is happening all because you are there.
I especially like the lunch menu, its great value and the bloody mary's with just the right amount of spice.

Been wanting to try this place for a long time. My daughter recently moved into this neighborhood and as we were exploring - we stumbled upon it. Our good luck. Had a great dinner - albeit expensive$$$$ - but it was a special occasion and every one enjoyed it. The grilled broccoli was great as was the warm goat cheese appetizers. Our entrees were also delicious including the chicken, pork chop, canneloni, and the steak. The service was extremely attentive. Took care of everything and was pleasant and you could see she was working super hard - although she did not seem frazzled. The only negative was the wine selection - just didn't have a lot of choices that worked for me.

If you sit at the chefs bar you can see how all the action goes down and it makes you appreciate your plate even more. I think it made the food taste better too. Also there's a bi-rite just next door for yummy ice cream if you've still got room. But I have to say everything was outta this world de-
lish!

First time here. Went for Sunday Brunch. Had the Brussels Sprouts, Poached Egg, Tasso Spiced Ham and Horseradish Cream. Very hearty and filling. Opened up with Goat Cheese Bread Pudding – Grapes and Upland Cress and Gem Salad. Shared with my two other guests. Ended with Chocolate Pot de Crème – Lavender Crème Anglaise and Buckwheat Cacao Nib Cookies and Trio of Ice Cream, Sherbet and Sorbet – Snickerdoodles. My guest had the Custard French Toast – Caramelized Apples and Maple Butter and Soft Scrambled Eggs –Bulgur, Spiced Chickpeas, Jasmine Rice and Parsley. All very good. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Next time, dinner it is
