My wife and I and friends ate here before going to the Walnut Street Theatre. What an outstanding experience. The menu is made each night with new items everyday except for a couple of items. It is a BYOB. The service was excellant, the food was great. The tables are in the living room of an old house. We will go again. The food changes so you always have a new experience.

Joshua Lawler has created a true masterpiece. Service, ambience, and attention to detail are stellar, BUT the food, OH THAT FOOD, sensational. Each course an harmonious blend of flavors and artful presentation.

Fishermen's catch and farmers' oeuvre have not often been so complimented by such a consummate restauranteur. Wonderful evening!!!

We loved this place, even though we had not been aware it was a BYOB and had to settle for sparkling water. The delicate dishes are very well composed and brilliantly executed, with a special eye for vegs and great care for the quality of the ingredients. The service is very friendly and personal. It is a very small restaurant, that is obviously well known and loved by locals, so make sure to reserve ahead. A wonderful experience, highly recommended.

This was the best meal we had before a show all season. We had the fixed price meal it was fabulous. The bloody beet steak with the balsamic glaze was incredible. If we could have licked our plates we would have. All of us got something different for the main course and all agreed that it was wonderful and cooked just like we wanted it. For dessert we all ordered something different so we could try it all, The chocolate dessert was the winner. This was the best farm to table experience I have had and would hardily recommend it. Not a big place so I would make reservations. BYOB is a bonus. The staff was accommodating, friendly and helpful. I will return.

Excellent cooking, ingenious blends of fresh local tastes and textures. Outstanding service to boot. Everything from bread to dessert was carefully prepared and presented. The BYO wine requirement is actually a nice idea for a change.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
