First time visit ... Thursday evening for dinner. Sat at the bar and enjoyed thebartender's quiet chat about the creative drinks she was making. The Brazen raisin was delicious, as was our food; sauté scallops, grilled romaine and crispy Brussels sprouts. Very comfortable atmosphere, nicely lit and a light jazz playing lightly. We look forward to coming back.

This is another place we stop at twice a year on our southern/northern trip. The menu has regular entres and an assortment of appitizers if you want something lighter. The bar serves up good drinks and the service is always on par. We look forward to visiting every year and we will be stopping there in the future. Try it you will like it!!

The food was great. The service was phenomenal. Give this local business a chance. You could spend about the same money at a corporate restaurant on route 3 but you won't be able to experience the historic district.

This place can be amazing or awful in regards to the food. When food was undercooked we were told that this was how the chef prepares it-chicken should not be eaten if pink no matter how the chef wants to prepare it.

I visit downtown F'berg a few times a year, and I almost always have at least one meal in this cute litte eatery. The menu is pretty interesting, offering twists on old favorites, and the staff is lovely, helpful and efficient. Given my druthers, I'd wish the menu were a bit more expanded, and more bread was given before the food arrives (this last visit, there were 3 of us, and only 2 pieces of breat in the basket. Once it was gone -- within moments, actually -- the bread and accompanying balsamic/EVOO was whisked away, never to be seen again -- or even asked if we wanted more :-( ) However, this won't deter me from eating there again -- fixing it will make a very good restaurant even better.
