If you are tired of fast food, or chains, this white tablecloth restaurant is a nice change of pace. Our food was delicious, the service was good and the price was reasonable. Do make a reservation on a weekend.

The quality is erratic. The items the chef grows on the roof are first cabin, but the meat is normally a disappointment. While this is certainly American food, much of it is far from normal American food.

Very enjoyable fine dining downtown. Morel mushroom pie was a very unique starter. Beef Wellington was good not great. Tuna plate was very fresh and flavorful. Cherry Rhubarb gateau was a nice finish. Obviously they use local fresh produce! Pricey but worth the price.
