The food was excellent. My husband had the Filet and I had the Monk fish. Our waiter was exceptional. He was friendly, attentive and very knowledgeable of everything on the menu. The restaurant has a causal feel with an upscale dining experience. We will definitely be back.

The restaurant was a very welcoming atmosphere and yet still had the fine dine feeling. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The farm to table menu was flexible to accommodate one of our picky eaters and yet still experience new food with great flavor. I would recommend this restaurant for its great food and farm to table experience.

The staff is very involved and attentive; brimming with suggestions. We were a party of five and started off with the New York Cheeseboard. Six cheeses and various fruits which... More

At her recommendation we ordered the cheese... More

With a farm to table concept, the menu varies. What you can expect is a perfectly prepared meal that looks as beautiful as it is delicious. Great service & wonderful ambiance.

Everyone on staff was super friendly and helpful. Food was delicious. We are from out of town and celebrated my wife's birthday. We brought our 2 year old son with us, and although it's not really a place for kids, we grabbed an early reservation asked for a high chair and everyone was really great about it. Good local beer...
