We traveled to Princeton from Northern New Jersy to meet our friends from Wilmington, Delaware. One of the most incredible dining experiences in quite a while. Everything was extraordinary - ambiance, service, food and wine selections. We can highly recommend this restaurant. Great value for the quality offered.

Absolutely everything was wonderful for our Thanksgiving lunch. We were there for our 1:30 pm reservation. From start to finish there was nothing to complain about. The staff was so caring and our waiter, Brian, couldn't have been nicer. My three courses.... beet salad, turkey, and date cake. My husband had the green salad, halibut and creme brulee. We also...

I've had three business dinners/meetings here each event with ~30 people. Staff and service impeccable. Appetizers varied and great. Main course - good, not great. I chalk it up to the fact that they're serving 30+ people at once, not bad. On separate occasions, a good place for pre-dinner drinks. I believe there are a three or four bedrooms but... More

We went to dinner here at the last minute with my wife and children, and I was immediately struck by the high level of service and the ambience. The food was truly amazing, and they managed to satisfy me even though I am vegetarian! The gnocchi was a must have as well as the butternut squash soup! The bread was... More

After months of swearing we were going to dine here, we finally made it in. We both had the five course tasting menu (With a complimentary amuse bouche, without the cheese bar) with wine traditional wine pairings. Every single dish came plated to perfection, went beautifully with the pairing, and was divine. The cheese gnocchi has to be the most... More
