My husband and I took a 94-year-old colleague and his daughter to dinner here and loved it. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive. We would love to come back another time.

Quaint little bistro style dining experience. Daily dinner socials are always fabulous and continue to surprise and delight my taste buds. The staff is always friendly and helpful when recommending particular dishes for the picky pallet. Well with the experience

I wanted to let the owners of this restaurant know how underwhelmed we were tonight at this restaurant. The mussels appetizer had a tasty broth, but the mussels were over cooked, and chewy. We couldn't eat them, and we were not charged for them. The...More
