Our meal was definitely interesting and the service was excellent but spicy salad? Not sure what was used but there was a lot of heat in my wife's squash salad and my ricotta dumplings. Also try to sit away from the open kitchen as clues...More

Very classy venue, decorated with a number of colorful paintings by a local artist. My husband had the "Frenched Chicken" and I had the "Cauliflower Steak." Both were delicious, attractively presented and reasonably priced. Our waiter, Greg, was very gracious and accommodating.

This chic, sleek contemporary place is an upscale eatery with an interesting menu and excellent, creative food and drink--amuse-bouche and all. For us it was a splurge--but we were marking a special reunion so it seemed warranted. Very pleasant atmosphere. Prices solidly high. But no...More

We share the curry mussels with noodle as our appetizer - was good! And the main were monk fish - was really good too; pasta with lamb - a bit "lammy" on taste and had a few soft bone in the source??? But good overall.

A 70 seat American-Fusion Restaurant, the only one in the area using truly local ingredients and changes thier menu every two weeks based on the availability of products. Both the beer menu and wine list are extensive and reasonable. As well one of the only restaurants that say if we don't have we will do our best to get it for your reservation.
