They made a unique place mundane. Who paints a restaurant gray? It wad depressing. Food and service were ordinary or worse. Menu is all over the place and not in a good way and execution is lacking. Lack of attention to detail includes not yet...More

We ordered the Potato Gnoch. It was one of the most delicious meals we have eaten! Beautiful, large Restaurant! The Salad was Organic with a delicious, light dressing. The friendly Chef came over and served both items. Highly recommend.

We had breakfast here once before in December 2013. That was good. This was not. Cold food dropped off at our table. No one came back to see how we were doing. Potatoes and sausage cold. Toast not really toasted. We had to walk over...More

This restaurant is actually a chain associated with the uniquely decorated and delightful Kimpton Hotels. It's a bistro, but better. The atmosphere is a little more upscale than a true bistro. And the food, ditto. We ordered from the oyster bar with a glass of...More
