Great food (elk, beef), helpful staff, expensive but not outrageous. Bread and desserts all made in-house. I would go again in a flash.

Had a wonderful breakfast on the patio. The salmon and corn cakes were amazing along with the chai seed pancakes. The pecan praline bacon was one of my favorite bites!!!

We had a fabulous meal there on the Saturday night of Bluegrass, and enjoyed every second of it. The menu was incredible, and everyone's entree was mouth-watering. I'd go there again in a heartbeat (and with a full wallet, of course ;-)

Chef did a great job accommodating gluten and dairy-free requests without losing any culinary deliciousness. Elk, lamb, trout, wild boar. All finger licking good!

The chef takes care to ensure that every meal comes out perfectly. Our family was seated outside on the front terrace. The street was quiet and provided glimpses of some of the Victorian history that came before us. As for food, the carpaccio tuna, guacamole...More

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. You will have to directly call the restaurant. They do take parties of six but they control when.
