Great location, and meals that are paired perfectly with wines. I recommend them for eating alone - I have always found great folks to visit with - or having an intimate dinner for two, or a large group - the rooms each have a different atmosphere, and the staff takes great care to ensure your needs are met with just...

Food average at best for the expectations. Service good, but not knowledgeable. Wine used to be good and now disappointing. How can a place that was great ten years ago slide so far?

Not one to rave but this is a must. Unique dishes ala sushi and calamari with great wines. Funky atmosphere. Great and friendly service from the owner. Prices were good. Go!!

We had our group dinner at this restaurant. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. We had a price fixed menu with three entrees, steak, chicken and salmon with a salad and desert.

I would have gave it a higher rating expect for problems with the service. We ordered the cheese fondue appetizer which was very very good. The other couple we were with also ordered salads, then dinner. We got done with the fondue, sat there for a while. Their salads were then brought to them, no problem. Expect now one minute... More

From reading other reviews, I was under the impression this was a very small, intimate, fine dining establishment. That did not turn out to be the case. It has two rooms, the first of which is a bar, which you walk through to be seated in the "dining room", although the bar area also has some tables. The bar area... More

The food is sort-of interesting there, like the decor and the service. The wine selection was not great at all. The squid ink linguini was a soy sauce salt bomb. Overall, way to go...

The lack of ambiance keeps this from qualifying as fine dining. It's too bad they don't have the whole package, but well worth a visit for the food and service. Basil shrimp is stellar, good trout and tuna; warm kale salad is too oily, but flavorful and interesting. No good champagne choices, some good wines, a variety of beers. The... More

We weren't dissatisfied. Got to create our own pizza and it was delicious! Pasta and meatballs were good too! They had a pool table and nice brews to chose from. Recommended.
