Hands down my favorite restaurant. Recently expanded their sitting area which means you can actually get in without month long reservation. Excellent service as well. Must go

My husband and I went for dinner. Cute local restaurant. Very intimate setting. The service was excellent. My dinner was just ok. Very expensive for what I ordered. I would recommend trying it.

Stopped in on a very busy Saturday evening. The recent expansion did add more tables, but the flow was a bit odd. There is no place to wait for your table. But the excellent food more than offset the wait and the noise.

Dined on a Friday evening and had the Swordfish special that night. One of the best pieces of swordfish I've ever had. Cooked perfectly on a bed of risotto!

Brought in a gluten free birthday cake, which they couldnt provide, and they had the nerve to charge a plating fee. Hey 9 Elm, go buy a gluten free cake at whole foods to serve to your customers and stop charging the high plating fee....More

The restaurant itself is only one tiny room and accommodates perhaps 25 people (plus a half dozen or so at the bar). You would need to reserve most of the tables!

there are parking spots in front and all around the area. I don't remember meters, as it is in the evening and you don't need to feed a meter after 5 or 6 pm. Parking has never been a problem. If there is nothing right out... More

For seating at the small bar, people usually are waiting to get in at 4:45. It would be next to impossible to snag 5 seats at the bar (only 7), otherwise. Good luck.
