The decor is unpretentious but cute. Our server was very friendly, answering our (as usual) many questions and guiding us towards our eventual choices.
My clam chowder starter was very nice - more celery than I expected, but it was tasty. Much better than others I'd had on my trip. My wife's butternut squash and goat cheese ravioli was good, but there was a little too much oil in the dish.
Her scallops and pork belly were also very tasty and prepared very well, both proteins being quite tender and moist. The scallops had a good sear on the outside. She found, though, that there was some kind of spice in the squash puree (we couldn't identify it - ginger?) that was a little strong. I didn't mind it so much, but she was a little turned off. My striploin with carmelized onion butter and onion rings was (to my mind) the star of the night, though. A beautifully cooked piece of meat whose sides accompanied it very well, especially the sour cream smashed potatoes. (The veggies weren't super exciting, but were better than just steamed broccoli.) I usually don't order steak when I'm out; I'm able to grill an acceptable specimen at home, and don't usually think the restaurant premium you pay is worth it. Here, it was.
Dessert was a "pumpkin bread pudding". I detected no pumpkin. Some pumpkin pie spice, maybe. This downgraded it to "bread pudding". Still a nice dessert, with some vanilla Ben & Jerry's (the first time I've seen a restaurant specify their ice cream brand), but not quite what we expected.
The presentation of the dishes was nothing special, with the scallop/pork belly combo being a little odd. Still, the food was very good and the prices were reasonable. I'd definitely head back.
