Everything on the menu is fresh, local whenever possible and seasonally perfect. I love the lamb - have had it twice.

Boy, we really wanted to like this place; I'd love to give it a 4, but there were just some problems that were serious to us. It has so many things going for it: great location, nice ambience and decor, local chef makes good, etc. Yes, we waited a while before we got our waiter, but he apologized for the... More

Bread is the beginning of amazing culinary adventure. Warm soft French or rosemary bread. You will want the entire basket but restrain yourself for the appetizers etc. artichokes in light batter and carrot ginger soup with spiral wonton chips. Main was scallops in spicy sauce with sweet squash and bouillabaisse with fresh fish in light red broth. Dessert was cherry... More

But, I like it and Marilyn was less enthusiastic. I had chicken breast that was nicely done over sauteed spinich and polenta, surrounded by small potatoes of every color and 6 different varieties of tomato. Excellent. But they were busy and the service lagged a little.

The small plates are good but the large plates are fairly expensive and we haven't ordered enough to rate them. The food sounds better on the menu than it tastes. The mussels had an interesting Thai style broth but the mussels themselves were very small and old looking. The ice cream sundae had very little ice cream and some sort... More
