Home run all the way around. Great food (chicken, scallops, lamb ribs), impeccable but not overbearing service, comprehensive wine list with unusual choices, nice atmosphere, good value. You won't be disappointed.

We were jumping around the Oregon District this past weekend and stopped back in here for drinks and salads. Casual upscale atmosphere. We did not feel out of place in jeans and nice shirts. Service at the bar is always wonderful. Plenty of drink options...More
