Third time here and we've loved the food every single time. It's a smaller restaurant on the hill, so I would recommend reservations on the weekend and especially in the summer. The dip trio is always a favorite of ours. They do $4 wine pours...More

Wonderful welcoming restaurant with local seasonal fare. We had a delicious squash and Parmesan soup, seared scallops with shaved pear and fresh homemade pasta with beef and basil Ragu. Waitstaff super friendly and offers good advice. Very pleasant find.

Love the menu- salads, entrees and appetizers made with fresh ingredients. The choices of a 1/2 or whole serving on a number of menu items means that you can really taste test which is fun! Great choices of beer on tap and amazing manhattans! The...More

Blue Spoon Probably the most disappointing and insulting hospitality experience I've ever experienced. Katie, and I don't know if she's the owner, manager or what, should get a new job or at least an attitude adjustment. The skinny: Booked an 8:45 pm reservation thru Open...More
