Yep, our server, Genesis (you can guess what her brother and sister's names are) started us with terrific French baguettes and whipped fresh butter. A thorough explanation of the specials, with some considerate modifications by the chef and crew simplified the ordering. The mushroom ravioli...More

This place is a gem. The small plate options allow each person to order a couple things, and everyone sample. Every one of our group of 10 ladies enjoyed the experience. One of my friends treated the table to the cheese sampler....wow. That was amazing....More
