We enjoyed the outdoor seating, delicious locally-sourced dinner and attentive service. Great setting for a romantic dinner, or meal with friends. This is on of our favorite spots on the Vineyard.

My significant other took me here for my birthday. I love cozy little restaurants, and I love tasting menus. It did not disappoint. The food was fresh and imaginative, and the staff were attentive without being overbearing. I'd recommend for a special night out.
