To be fair, The Prune is not cheap and the portions are small. Your entree is just the main item mentioned. Anything else in the description is garnish. So, if you want to feel full, consider adding side orders to your meal. And accept the...More

OK, let’s get the good stuff out of the way first. The food was more than delicious, it was ambitious and heavenly. The setting seamlessly blends a modern chic interior into a beautiful Victorian house. Our waitress (I think her name was Theresa) was friendly,...More

The Prune is for diners who prefer quality over quantity, who want to slowly savor layers of complex flavors over three or four courses. The servers are adept at pairing each course with wines. I've been here twice now and look forward to next year.

I'd like to purchase a gift certificate for my daughter and Son-in-law, Debbie and Gary Walt. I believe they have already made a reservation for our Labor Day Weekend for dinner in your restaurant probably Sept. 4th 5th or 6th. I would like to purchase a gift certificate for dinner in the amount of $150. It is their 30th wedding anniversary weekend. How do I go about doing this? Sincerely, Ann Burnstine, Phone: 847/835-1974
