Great food although a bit pricy. Staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Chose the 4-course "tasting menu" and left it up to the chef to decide what we were having. This was an adventurous and delicious decision. Great cocktails and wonderful wine selection as well. Small...More

My wife and I went here on a date night. Cocktails were offbeat, but tasty. Service wasn't overly special (which was unfortunate). Ambiance was comfortable and quaint but not intimate. With all that being said, the food was amazing. It's not a cheap date, but...More

Every dish that our group had was delicious. Our particular favorites were the fennel Olives (exquisite flavor!), the Rabbit Rillette with cherries (excellent balance of savory & sweet),the Octopus (tender), the Beets with pistachio malt soil (richly earthy) and the Scallops (prepared so that the...More
