“Eaten there twice?? still poor”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

the quinoa salad is undercooked; the kale salad has not been massaged and made soft properly. the service was rather poor each time. We were two women and they seemed to know we don't eat or order that Much food and made us feel like second class citizens. I should have sent everything back was but afraid they would spit on the next dish. Avoid this place. It is over priced and the
chef is poorly schooled.

“Very good quality food”
Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

Had a dinner with a collegue. We shared flat bread with arugula and mushrooms. Watery fresh and had lots of flavors . I ordered goat dish with parsnips. The meat was cooked to perfection, had no aftertaste. The portion was large and can be shared. My colleague had liberty duck and it was excellent! It was served with potato terrine that was a bit dry. For desert we split berry creme brûlée . It was served in a square glass jar and it was not comfortable to spoon it out. I felt the price tag was a bit high. The ambiance is very nice. Lots of people were enjoying appetizers and a drink at the bar. I would probably come again

“Promising but needed a little more work”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

Food was ok, flavors were under-represented so could have been bolder. Menu has limited veg options, but reasonable ones. Service was good. Location was good as well.
