“OMG!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Well, we didn't quite know what we were getting into, but what a delightful surprise! The food made my taste buds literally explode! I have NEVER described food as such before, but this is def. the exception! The staff was just wonderful and made us quite comfortable while we were adjusting our mental attitude to this new dining experience. We had a table overlooking the square & had a memorable dining experience.

A terrific restaurant for romantic foodies. Top notch service with interesting and delicious food. We like having a table with privacy so we could enjoy each other and the many courses.

“Foodies Only!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

This is not a place for the "meat and potatoes" crowd. It is suited perfectly for the foodie, who is williing to try something unique. Very fresh ingredients cooked to perfection. A fixed price menu allows for some choices. I even did the wine pairing and loved it. And the service was over the top great!
