This intimate little restaurant is excellent. It is quietly classy and serves very good food. I enjoy an elegant presentation of well-prepared classic dishes, with a twist of uniqueness, and this is an accomplishment of just that.

We sat outside on the small patio and watch people walking. The salad and soup for lunch was good. I would go back

Enjoyed tasty chicken pesto sandwich with truffle french fries after an adult cucumber cocktail at the bar. Bar and table service were prompt, courteous. Bartender brought drinks to our table 6' away. Lively vibe indoors.

This was delicious! It was a warm day and I still ordered their signature "comfort combo" of their creamy sundried tomato soup and one of the most amazing grilled cheeses (add the bacon) I've ever had! The business casual atmosphere was calming and a great place to be able to sit and chat with friends. They also had a really... More

Quick dinner on a Sunday evening. Had a reservation but not crowded. Nice wine list, limited selection of beer, some interesting cocktails. Wife ordered the lamb chops, and I had the flatiron steak. Lamb chops came in a very tasty pomegranite sauce with chunks of sweet potato on the side. Cooked nicely and both were "double" chops, nice and meaty.... More

Not awful, but nothing special anymore. Used to be cozy, inviting, warm, with great dishes. Now, no tablecloths leaves it looking naked and empty. Food was ok but nothing like it once was. Based on my dinner, I wouldn't go back in a hurry. I hope they pick back up to the lovely restaurant they used to be. Disappointed.

Cute cafe/bar. Saturday offered the brunch menu and had a lot of delicious options. I ordered a Bloody Mary (standard... Good but nothing special) and the Sundried Tomato Skillet. The dish was delivered in a cast iron skillet on a cutting board along side a small cup of fruit. The skillet was delicious and included two fried eggs on top... More
