Whenever we visit our friends, we come here for dinner. This time, the layout had changed and there was a very noisy group in the bar area where our table was located. However, we were moved to a quieter area and had a great time....More

Food is always very good, though the restaurant is pricey for fancy sandwiches. There is outdoor space which is not too common for restaurants in Woodbury.

I had high hopes for this restaurant, especially after they remodeled the bar area. The food was good and well prepared but I expected something more. In an area where there are so many other restaurants, I had hoped that this one would stand out...More

I've wanted to try this well-known restaurant for years. Carole Peck is the real deal, a true artist, and this restaurant is her vehicle. It is casual, eclectic, unpretentious, and comfortable. The farm-fresh food is as good as it gets. Every item that gets on...More

Sorry, I don't. She changes offerings on a regular basis.....always delicious and intriguing. But if you call, they will tell you if there will be special menus for that night. Reservations are a must.
