Sat outside on the three season patio - warm-ish February day. Very comfy with their outdoor heating system and adjustable enclosure system. Food was very good. I had the steak and others had salmon. The service was great but not overly attentive. You must try the scalloped potatoes with shrimp. We had dessert and shared it at the table. The... More

Third visit nothing special about the food (lunch menu). And high price for so-so lunch - $12 range. This lunch was almost inedible - beef and blue baguette. Meat was so tough and grisly that I couldn't chew it. Should have complained but didn't want to detract from having a get together with a good friend. If someone suggests we... More

I've been here a few times for lunch and once for dinner. Their Caesar salad is very good and has a wonderful garlic flavor. I also had the sweet potato fries, which were good. However, the garlic aioli actually didn't have much garlic flavor. The quesadilla is also very tasty. The best thing on the menu, though, is the triple... More

A group of us stopped in after an evening of volunteering at a nearby neighborhood center, we were warmly greeted even though it was late in the evening and there were 10 of us. Our server was Scott who was most gracious and helpful with our unusual requests. He made excellent suggestions and we all throughly enjoyed our meals. Tavern... More

We arrived 45 minutes prior to our reservation and they graciously accommodated us. We were seated in the upstairs dining area. I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Our server seemed a bit frazzled but took great care of us. I chose this restaurant because the menu looked fantastic. The problem is that the food was very disappointing. I had the Boulliabaise....

Arrived around 5:00 on a Saturday with a party of four. The place was not very busy yet and had a laid back vibe. However, our waiter was not attentive at all and after our food finally arrived, i had to wait for close to ten minutes for remaining tableware so i could eat. It only came after i asked... More

We had been here before when in town on business and we loved it. This time they definitely did not disappoint. The food was amazing. Service was great. There was an issue with our reservation getting lost and they accommodated our party of six anyway. We will definitely go back the next time we are in town.
