I've never had bad food here! Try the Chef's choice and enjoy the best food of the night. Service is always excellent.

I highly recommend the chef's tasting dinner with wine pairing. The food was all fresh and exquisitely prepared. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was lovely. Perfect for a romantic evening out.More

Thank you for dining with us and I am glad that you got to experience one of our very last Chef's Whim tastings. Since I announced my retirement, we have had to abandon our tastings because we have been overwhelmed with business. Saturday August 5th...More

This restaurant knows how to produce great tasting food. The wines combined with that food are also great. The only problem is that the chef will retire around the 8th of August 2017. So if you want to experience this nice restaurant, make sure you...More

Truly an great dinning experience. The food quality was excellent, the servers were friendly and knowledgable, and the ambience was great. This was our first visit and may sadly be our last. The owner is retiring and closing up shop in early August.More

I'm really glad you got to come visit us before I retire. Our 15-year run is coming to a close on August 5th when I step away from the range for good. I'm really sad about that and excited about it at the same time....More

I've eaten here only once...it's a little expensive for my budget... But the food and the service were both excellent. I found the meal to be inspiring and creative. I'm still trying to re-create the brussels sprouts with pork bellies. Heavenly...

Fine dining for sure, with tables far enough apart for quiet comfort. Inventive menu, excellent wine list, caring service, owner/chef stopped at our table twice, a surprisingly fine meal in this relatively small city.

Quiet atmosphere in a quaint spot. Menu was interesting, but we requested some ingredient changes (a simple change of type of greens from cabbage to arugula or similar greens in my salad.) Request was denied. Chef seemed unwilling to accommodate any variation. So, I declined...More
