Absolutely terrific meal, with thoughtfully prepared and perfectly executed seasonal dishes. Everything was delicious, and perfect blend of meat, fish, and vegetable on the tasting menu.

$200.00; one glass of wine each. We prefer the lunch choices; the set menu at lunch is wonderful! $80.00 range for two. A special treat we just gave as a treat to friends.
