This place has not lost its greatness from the Rosemary and Sage days. The service was as expected, outstanding. This is not a fancy, shmancy place; yet, it has a comfortable elegance that makes you feel right at home. It's nicely designed and laid out....More

Full bar and good menu selections. The bistro also offers a tasting menu. Everything is very good, but prices are a little high. Service is really good as well.
