Enjoyed a late supper after concert rehearsal. Lovely food, especially the Chicken Paillard. I also loved the Honeysuckle Bee Sting martini 🍸. Even though we arrived just before closing we were made to feel comfortable and not rushed.

Often we come here and enjoy a delicious appetizer of Hummus and wine then dive into a delicious Chicken Paillard or Salmon. Food is always cooked to perfection! We will continue to come.

Came here for dinner. Sat at the bar for a drink and relaxed. Had the mussels in coconut sauce. Very good. Baguette was toasted which was nice.

This is a quaint little place that has great food and great service. It's a little tight in there and a little loud but other than that its delightful! Fresh pasta made locally that is out of this world!
