Reviewed April 8, 2010

This small restaurant tucked into downtown Vancouver offers the best meals I have found in my 17 years living in Clark County. The chef/owner prepares fresh daily specials using local produce and products whenever possible. The service is flawless. A small, but excellent wine list at reasonable prices. Try the tomato soup; it is like none you have ever tasted before. Hungry? The lasagna portion feeds two and makes you wonder if grandma cooked it! The menu is varied with tasty duck in a blueberry reduction sauce, fine chicken dishes like marsala and saltimboca, and the meat dishes are consumed with gusto. Be sure to try the appetizers like the spinach crepes and lobster risotto. You get the idea: great food at very modest prices. Lunch and dinner, Tuesday through Saturday.
