Started out enjoying some delicious wine our hostess Erica selected for us -- this woman's knowledge of wines was short of amazing! We proceeded to order various appetizers / shared plates for two. Delightful! From warmed olives, scallop ceviche, 3-cheese plates to the seared Duck...More

A bit pricy for what you get, the environment is nice, the waitress is attentive, the food on the other hand is unimpressive, Avoid the soft shell crab. The dishes are small, being different doesn’t always mean better though.

This bistro has had ups and downs since its opening in 2014. As of this week, the menu has been revamped and is more interesting and innovative (grilled watermelon, grilled peaches on pannacota, etc.) but the service is dismal, completely out of sync and uncoordinated....More

Lots of options. Had the paella and ice cream sandwich - both of which were good! Interesting drinks available too!

I had been here several months ago with a friend. We were less than impressed then and hoped things had improved. We returned for another try. We only had tapas which were small plates and rather expensive. I don't know if the chief is hoping...More
