I had the Cesar salad. The capers really were a nice touch that made my salad better than average. The homemade bread and dip were a meal in itself. Waiter was attentive. As I enjoyed having a fast choice for lunch while taking a break...More

This was my first visit to this restaurant after my daughter’s graduation. Service was very good and the food was excellent. Accommodating to change menu item to a vegetarian option. Would definitely go back. Great food and wine selection with great atmosphere.
