I had to try their signature grilled cheese...and it was delicious. Perfect combination of cheeses and grilled to perfection. Definitely not your typical grilled sandwich. Extremely attentive waitstaff, nice atmosphere. All-around nice lunch experience.

When I was part of a group of 15 or so, we let them know a couple of days in advance, and they accommodated us. I don't know if it was an actual reservation or not, since I didn't arrange it.
