“Desserts to die for”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

On this evening we ordered a smoked salmon pizza and a roasted vegetable sandwich. My husband and son really enjoyed the pizza. I thought the sandwich had great flavor and a nice use of the vegetables used, but the bread was toasted a bit much for my liking, it made it kind of hard to eat without tearing up the roof of my mouth. The salad that came with the sandwich was fantastic. For dessert we shared both the grasshopper brownie, which was very good, and the flourless chocolate ... torte? It was shaped like a (short) large round cake with strawberries around the perimeter. One slice of this was so rich and decadent that it was more than enough for us all to share. Oh how I savored that! That alone is worth the trip if a dessert is what you crave. We sat on the upper floor and the kids had fun watching the chefs working in the kitchen down below.

Stopped in for a quick lunch bite and it was very good. Friendly service and good food. Really liked the areas where you could sit on a comfy couch to eat.

We stopped by for just a little something between wine tastings and wished we had allowed time to dine. Fun, pleasant helpful staff and good food.

“Great Place for Casual Dining”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

It was hot and busy and we sweated the whole time (so find space downstairs).
Great food- you order at the counter and they bring it to you. We had a hummus platter which was divine and the asparagus special which was even better. Superb wine selection and competent staff. I loved this place when it was Merchants. I wasn't expecting it to get better!
Famil/ vegetarian friendly!
