Small, cozy environment, NYC style dining... tables close together, attentive staff. Really good food and some unique menu choices. Three course, each carefully prepared and expertly presented. No matter what you order, you'll probably spend a little time looking at it before you dig in. Portions aren't huge but by the time dessert rolls around, you're definitely satisfied. BYO so pick up a nice bottle and enjoy a great meal.

If you like great tasting food beautifully presented, a smaller restaurant and a laid back staff, you'll like this place.

It's fine dining but without a professional wait staff. The waitress was somewhat knowledgeable about the menu but not 100%. She took good care of our table. I enjoy this experience more than having 3 waitstaff taking care of you at some places.
This cozy place will grow on a certain cliental and hopefully will be around for a long time.

Very solid kitchen - know what they are doing. IT is a BYOB place and this keeps costs at more reasonable level. Highly reccommend this place...it was small, well run and delicious.

In many ways this would have been the perfect meal. The food was very fresh. The portions were controlled. The room was lively but not overpoweringly noisy. Our only complaint was that three out of four of the dishes that we had were on the salty side. To be fair, we don't put a lot of salt on our food compared to most Americans. I think we would be more than willing to try the restaurant again and see if our observation stands.

This was our first time dining here. It won't be the last! The food was spectacular. Every course tasted better than the last. His beet steak appetizer was amazing as were the frog legs. All six of us loved everything including the great desserts. It's a BYOB which is a plus. Can't wait to go again.
