Excellent farm to table using fresh ingredients. Menu changes often as Chef works with the best local products. Fish, meats and more. Excellent presentation and service. The most delicious of foods. Perfect for a special occasion rather than the daily meal.

I had the melon soup which came out as a stacked, fruit salad in a herb infused broth that was not more than an inch high in the bowl -- hardly a soup. Moreover, the melon just did not go well with a savory broth...More
