This is what i would say is one of the best restaurants in Amherst. The owners also have another seasonal location in Nantucket . Amazing food, great wine list, and a wonderful staff. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant.

The food here is good, but I marked it down because the quality and creativity does not warrant the steep prices. We each had a glass of wine, good selection and good quality. I got the chicken dish and my wife got the beef dish....More
