We loved everything about this place; the service (fantastic - sorry we didn't get his name but he said he's been there forever), the food (their focus is on healthy, local, sustainable).

The nachos are the best I have ever had. The toppings (including cheese) are layered and plentiful. I recommend adding beef. The service could be a bit faster but it is worth the wait. The view from the Dartmouth restaurant is beautiful.

My expectations were high for this place. The tacos were quite tasty but the bruschetta was just ok and the kids were not impressed with the cheese pizza. Hubby's veggie pizza was only ok too. Maybe if I wasn't expecting awesome then I would have...More

Hi there, We normally only take reservations for 6 and over. We have four reservations already at 530pm. If you were to arrive at 515pm you wouldn't have a problem getting a seat. Your order would get in ahead of the other... More
