It's delicious, creative, reasonably priced farm-to-table food that impresses, and I'm a hard-core NYC foodie that doesn't hand out nice words so easily. Just eat there and thank me later.

Innovative food, beautifully presented, nice wine list. The best food outside of Manhattan, certainly in Orange County, New York. The menu changes monthly, locally sourced foods are utilized. The wait staff is very knowledgable, especially Robin.

I have only been here one time. Perhaps if you eat outside it is a different experience, where you are literally in a backyard. The food was fantastic which is why they didn't get a zero. Though the waitress we had was snooty when we...More

Atmosphere is simple. The menu is fresh. The pairings are unique. The result blew us away. Sometimes menus 'try too hard' - this is the real thing. We have been there twice in the last two months - and since they change their menu monthly,...More
