Went in for dinner but found ourselves still in Happy Hour time. I had a seafood risotto that was fabulous and my husband had scallops with fresh seasonal vegetables. The service was very attentive. It got very busy by the time we left (and noisy).

What an unusual idea - to have a wine shop inside a home-style local restaurant! Nice varied menu. Well priced. The Duck Confit and Bread Pudding dessert (made with croissant) were both excellent. (and…of course…the wine….)

Excellent menu, delicious, different entrees but something for everyone. Moderate prices. You can go into the wine shop in the restaurant and pick out your own wine for dinner. Make a reservation, they stay busy!
