We had a mini celebration at this delightful restaurant. The menu has the usual brunch dishes. All of us were very satisfied with our entrees. There were 12 of us and the service was excellent.

A quality restaurant with tasteful decor. The menu is creative and the food is wonderfully prepared and presented. The staff - from hostess to servers - make this a pleasant dining experience. Quiet enough for normal conversation and visually appealing.
