This cute little restaurant was an awesome find. The food was fantastic, and beautifully plated. Our waiter was attentive, friendly, and very knowledgeable about every aspect of the menu. The restaurant itself is cozy, and the decor is lovely. I highly recommend it for couples...More

We have never been disappointed here. Though small, we have always managed to get a table. The service is great, not rushed and the food is comfort food but always original. The wine prices are great and every trip seems special. We shall return!

Worth traveling from Seattle. My favorite restaurant in WA State. First visit was 20 years ago and it's only improved since then. Food is beautifully presented and reasonably priced. Try the mussels - wonderfull.

My husband was working in Poulsbo and discovered this amazing place. We have actually driven from Puyallup for their amazing lamb sliders - and I don't even care for lamb. They have an amazing way - if we ever become wealthy, we will move close...More

I went for a date a few months ago, was really disappointed in the service, and the food has never been that great, but I knew that. We lingered until closing, and when we were contemplating having a dessert, the owner made it clear they...More

I will give it five stars for the food and service. No full bar for those who might wish to have a cocktail, however, a nice wine and beer selection. Four stars for the "sticky" tables. Makes you wish there were some sort of place...More
