Great folks, very gracious to the customers needs. I find it a very nice place to have a drink or brunch, my wife also works in Brookside, so very convenient to drop in for lunch or drinks after work.

Stopped be early evening for a drinks, antipasti and salads. All very good and tasty. Service attentive and friendly. Watch when you say "booth" as a seating preference, however, as you may get stuck in the back of the house near busy waitstaff and cooking...More
