Great restaurant with extensive menu. Food is good and service superb. Just around the block from The Jefferson Hotel.

The food was good. I had a vegetable sub with plenty of veggies and ricotta and mozzarella cheese. It came with some yummy sweet potato fries. The place was busy with customers...good sign of a good place to eat. It is a historic building...an old pharmacy.

The menu is huge, and the execution exellent. The she crab soup won raves from 3 of our party, and everything else was good. Service was good, though the weekday lunch crowd slowed the kitchen a bit. All the praise seems well justified.

We were recommended this place, since we wanted seafood. It was wonderful all around, expect high prices, since you are downtown, but the trade off is fun atmosphere, quality service, and really good food. This restaurant is very popular with locals so go early and/ or make reservations if you go at dinner time. Some of our colleagues didn't have our success on the weekend since they were placed by the kitchen, even though they had reservation (they had a large group). Theywere NOT happy.

We went to Tarrant's cafe since we heard a lot before about it and were not disappointed at all.
The food was good, not very expensive, but yes, more than the cheaper options available in town.
The ambiance of the restaurant is great. It is small and seems tight to move around but still OK for being in downtown. The staff is friendly.
Would definitely try this place more often.
I am not commenting about the food as I just had the hummus appetizer as I was not much hungry.
My friends did have the regular food and were praising it so the reason for me to try this place again.
