FANTASTIC DINNER! Let's start with the service, as that usually last. Adam Gnau (chef/manager) and our server Andy, did just a great job of reviewing the menu and the wines. There is no rush. First, we did the four course dinner, which I highly recommend....More

Great ingredients are melded into dishes of unbelievable creativity. I recommend getting the multiple course meal as you really get to taste the chef’s talent. Mushrooms are the unofficial house specialty. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly, never pushy.
