Hidden behind McDonalds, yes, behind plastic golden arches in a strip mall is this little jewel serving anything but typical fare. The service, presentation, unique dishes and flavors are thoughtfully and carefully prepared and served. The menu changes seasonally, and the specials are always an adventure in some new dish you never knew you loved. If you have the chance,... More

Excellent wine list. Get on their mailing so you hear about special dining and wine pairings. Foodies will truly enjoy... More

The Chef is incredibly creative and the seasonal menus make it worth coming back time after time. Service has been fantastic each time we visit and attention to detail in everything from place settings to food itself is amazing!

Our server was so sweet, and the food was fantastic! I recommend the salmon, but the menu changes seasonally. They had NY wine on the menu, and lots of desserts to choose from.

We went here for my dad's birthday and the food was amazing! The soup, crabcakes, entrees, and dessert were out of this world! The atmosphere is quaint, staff is amazing, and there is a good wine selection. Everything is prepared fresh! I recommend the Butternut squash dish, tuscan chicken, or the sole with brown butter! They even gave my dad... More

Our dinner was at 5 PM on a Tuesday so the place was not crowded. We split a salad and had 2 main course entrees with coffee and enjoyed every morsel. The bread was home made and serves with 3 side dishes for dipping: Tuscan butter, oil and balsamic vinegar, and olive tapenade that left us craving more. The entrees... More

A wonderful little place in Spencerport with a sophisticated lunch menu. Perhaps a bit expensive but worth the extra dollars to get some unusual food for a nice lunch. Good place to go with friends.

Three of us went for dinner on a warm summer week night. The restaurant is small, but we went early and were seated and served beverages quickly. By the time we had finished our meal, the restaurant was filled inside with more being served on the patio. The menu is seasonal and has some unusual offerings, I must admit that,... More
