Highly recommend reservations. We had cute table next to bar. Waiter and staff very attentive. Known for farm to table--oysters and mussels very good. Steak and scallops as well. Homemade ice cream especially the chai one worth the calories!

Artisan foods with vegetables being the star of the show. Wonderful flavor blends for an experienced palate. We went for Sunday Supper which is a fixed menu just like grandmas with more flare.

Lots of interesting choices and combinations of ingredients. Especially enjoyed the smoked chicken and the farro and vegetable entree. Service was friendly but not rushed, even though it was a very busy Saturday night.
