Food is excellent but service is somewhat slow. Don't expect to eat and go but rather lounge and take your time.

We are from out of town and were headed for a chain restaurant when I spotted their sign. I convinced my teen daughter and her friend that it was worth a try, and we were all very glad we did! We didn't have reservations and had to wait a little while for a table but it was worth it. Everything was delicious, the service was very good, and the crème brûlée was the best I've ever had - perfectly soft and creamy inside, with a beautifully crisp and delicate topping.

Had to try this place due to the buzz and good reviews. Tried it twice before writing this review. Every dish our party ordered over two occasions was ample, nicely presented, prepared well, and over the moon delicious. Ask questions before ordering menu items though, as the descriptions don't always exacly match the dish. A couple of our dishes were served over pasta or risotto when nothing was mentioned in the written description. I also like that they always seemed to have a couple of yummy specials on top of the wide menu selection. Nice atmosphere, excellent service. They've missed the mark on the wine, however. Too many obscure labels at unforgiving prices. They need more bottles in the $25-$35 range in my opinion. The $18 corkage is also too high for this level of restaurant. Good food. Try it.

We have dined at this lovely white linen establishment and never been disappointed, but after the grandchildren arrived it became more difficult to dine with them.

The deli has provided a wonderful substitute. The beep read, the pasta, and more are all the same as served in the restaurant next door, but you can wrap it up and take it home. We are so glad that the opened, as there are not many places in the area to purchase truly home made pasta and sausage.

Been coming here for 20 years now. Never had a bad meal. Great fish, light pastas, always a good choice.
