We had both good and bad experiences at a recent dinner here. The good news: the food was very good, very sophisticated, and very interesting. Food for serious foodies. The tuna appetizer was practically raw, sliced super thin, and melted in your mouth. Salmon was...More

We went during restaurant week with six of our neighbors, so we had a lot of different things, and everything everyone had was fabulous! Very rare to be that consistently good. But they were. We will be back again for sure!

My daughter treated me to a belated Mother's Day brunch here on Memorial Day weekend. Cute rustic atmosphere. We ate in the courtyard in the back, which seats about 20-25 people. Relaxed pace and delicious food, especially the fresh scones!

You will have no trouble finding the restaurant since it has been in business over 40 years. It is a "fine dining" experience for both lunch and dinner. The wine list is extensive. The cooking is flavorful, creative and thoroughly enjoyable. Please include this in your listings.
