Also enjoyed the rolled eggplant with spaghetti... Impressive wine list...Be sure to try the house made red or white sangria! Love this restaurant for couples & girls "get aways".

We really enjoyed our dinner here, it was a great little find. The menu is not large but it is very tasteful and offers many options. We had the pizza of the day which had kale, sweet potatoes, onion jam and goat cheese on it - it was lovely. NIcely done in a wood fired oven. Drinks were excellent, I had a nice rosemary/cucumber martini which although it was a bit pricey (14) I enjoyed every drop of it. Although it looks to be a place that caters to a lot of families, it is still a nice dining place, excellent service, high end and nicely done bistro food.

I lived in New Buffalo for 15 years and return now and then. This is still the best restaurant in town. The Executive Chef, Jenny, is terrific and makes very good meals, from thin crust pizza, to Chilean Sea Bass, which is her Signiture dish. There's something for everyone here, great service and reasonable but Chicago type prices. If you want an up scale night, this is the spot. You can eat on the terrace overlooking a marina on a nice night too. Nice for couples, family and romance outside.
Lunch overlooking the marina is very nice.

We love this restaurant! My wife had turf and surf and I had a filet mignon. I'm pretty sure that they hand select their cuts of meat and they cooked it to perfection. My side of potatoes was special. Service was excellent. We will always eat at this restaurant when we are in this area.

We were here with a party of 10 and had a reservation. We know we would be split into 2 groups of 5. We sat inside, as there was a long wait for outside. Our waitress was really efficient and accommodating, as was the server at the other table of 5. There is a nice variety of food to choose from. If you can, book far in advance to sit outside, as it is on the water. We had a nice dinner, and the prices are reasonable.
