Really enjoyed the tasting menu here, few tables inside, had outdoor seating as well. Each dish was lovely and paired nicely with wine. The service was amazing!

The crispy crab risotto topped with shrimp was good. The pork chop had a fantastic sauce and was cooked passed medium, over done for me. Enjoyed the atmosphere and wine but the glass of pinot noir cost nearly as much as a bottle at home.
