We were with a group of 10 who had dinner here on a Friday night and could not have asked for a nicer experience. This is a relatively small restaurant with seating for 70-80 and yet they handled our group along with all their other clients without a glitch. The menu offers a wonderful variety of choices ranging from rabbit to wild boar and everything we had was outstanding. Our table was located in the front of the restaurant and happily we did not have any difficulty hearing each other (which is a problem in many restaurants). Our waitress did a super job with the drink, food and dessert orders.

Excellent haute cuisine, albeit in a strip mall behind a Bob Evans beside a BP. Always a fantastic meal, never disappoints. Can go for special night, great lunch, I even take the kids and they are served in gourmet dog bowls....

A diamond in the rough. Very different type of menu, had wild boar, was very good. Terrific service, would go back again for sure.

I was a little concerned when pulling up to this strip mall and seeing the Subway right next door to this rare gem. Luckily, it is just that (a rare gem). Privately owned by the chef, scrumptious is the single word to describe the delectable edibles here. From the seared (and warm) wrapped Caesar's salad to the boar dish (did you know that even though part of the pig family, this is actually a red meat?) with duck confit to the scallops with paella and the delicious bread, you won't be disappointed with anything you order.
