We arrived at 5:00 on a Friday to a line of people waiting to get in. The restaurant opened and we were quickly seated. The restaurant was smaller than I had imagined and quite noisy. The service was attentive but slow allowing us to enjoy...More

This was a most enjoyable evening in a laid back atmosphere with food thoughtfully prepared utilizing fresh ingredients. The wine that was featured with the entree made for an excellent pairing. Staff was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. If we lived in the neighborhood...More

The outside of the building is very basic, but the food and service inside are excellent. This place was recommended to us and was a great choice. Its small on the inside, so it can get busy. We highly recommend it!

Beautiful presentation of entrees along with a cute setting. For the price, however, the restaurant seems overly simple- straight chairs, minimal decorating. Service was ok. Be prepared to wait- it is very popular.

The service and food are outstanding. We ordered duck and native trout entrees, which were expertly prepared and promptly served in a casual setting.

Using fresh local food was why we came and the food was very good. Service was good. We unfortunately got sat right by the bar so was pretty noisy on a weekend night but that was our only negative. Prices were reasonable.

I did not see any young children (2-6) there, but call ahead and ask. The issue is do you want to wait with a young cranky child if they are child friendly. I did see teens and that would be fine. I sure that younger... More
