interesting menu, great rosemary bread .. if you want a salad, it's extra. Wouldn't go again .. food was good but not worth the price.

4 of us had dinner together this evening. The drinks were good. The appetizers were very nice: squash bisque,lobster bisque and lobster strudel. The strudel was so delicious and rich that I could have stopped there. The meat or fish of each entree was cooked...More

Best restaurant in Falmouth hands down. The food is creative, and the atmosphere is very comfortable. This is not your typical Cape Cod seafood restaurant where you grab dinner. It is an enjoyable evening where you go to dine.

Our dinner was beyond reproach, but quite unexciting. One can get this caliber of fare for much less elsewhere in Falmouth. Most of the clietele seemed to be wealthy retirees. Perhaps prefer more traditional cooking than we do.

Very well done meal. Service was exceptional. We showed up 20 minutes before our reservation and they accommodated with no problem. I ordered a drink I made up (cucumber lime and soda) and they didn’t flinch and it was delicious. The salad (watermelon / cheddar)...More

Pretty much everything but the gnocchi is gluten free. As far as reservations, you'd have to call them and ask.
