Great upmarket looking restaurant in the prime location of Newbery Street. Nice lunch menu & reasonably priced too. Lots of business men in the restaurant and ladies lunching in their designer attire. They have a more relaxed casual section also which offers the same menu...More

This is a quaint spot on busy Newbury worth the find. The service was great, atmosphere was lovely, and the food spectacular. The calamari appetizer was scrumptious and my salmon was the best I have ever had.

Bar tenders should be a little more knowledgeable or creative when making drinks. If unable to make something on the fly, they shouldn’t even try.

My friends and I got reservations and arrived early for drinks. The drinks were amazing and the food did not disappoint. The deviled eggs and the calamari were perfect. Great wine selection as well. Amazing food but a more casual feel. Excellent.

Busy, busy, busy people-watching kind of place on glamorous Newbury Street. Popular Saturday brunch spot. If you're a weekend walk-in looking for a table it might be a while. Food good and slower but pleasant service (for a Saturday).
