I've been there a few times for lunch. I like the food, and especially the sweet orange bbq chicken dish. Nice atmosphere too.

It's small, but well decorated and comfortable. They squeezed in a lot of tables for the space, so the wait wasn't too bad. Food is very good, although the menu isn't extensive. A great option for a comfortable dinner

Nothing fancy, plenty of Vassar College-ites, really good food at reasonable prices. There's also a bar, an asset.

Pleasant, low key place, with varied menu. Attentive service and not terribly crowded for a Friday night. Would definitely return.
