“Went for dessert, somewhat disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

I went for dessert after a good meal with my girlfriend. The cappuccino tasted burnt, the dessert sampler was somewhat un-inspired, and the whole thing was very faux-fancy without blowing me away. nothing was really bad, but it was all kind of bland and uninteresting. I may go back for dinner sometime, but I'm not encouraged.

“Loved our starters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

We both enjoyed our appetizers quite well: sweet corn flan and cantaloupe risotto. The risotto was a bit goopy, but it was very tasty.

Our entrees were quite fine, but nothing special.

The atmosphere in the bar seemed better than the "formal" dining room where we ate. I felt like I was in a church basement, probably due to the chairs and the two swinging double-doors into the bar area. More elegant, high back chairs would make a big difference to making the place feel special.

“Excellent food with unusual choices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

We went here with some friends from The Springs. My husband had the scallops and I had a vegetarian mushroom stack. Both of ours was excellent. All four of us had salads that were dressed perfectly and very fresh ingredients. This is a busy restaurant, but they also have a small wine room. The chef should be complimented for their unusual entrees that make it fun to try something different.

“Great martinis, but hummus plate needs improvement”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

Met a friend for drinks yesterday afternoon. We ordered a hummus plate, which included a very small amount of hummus (which was very good) and several small rolls which were hard and not easy to break apart to eat with the hummus. The waiter told us the bread is made at the nearby Ivywild Bakery, and is delivered in the morning. They used to have very fresh bread to accompany the hummus plate, but this was really not acceptable. Their martinis continue to be among the best in town.

“Great Casual Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

Our B&B host recommended this place - we arrived, it's in a cute neighborhood. The food was awesome: beef tips, amazing mashed potatoes and priced well.
