Small menu, updated daily. Waitress not overly warm, enough to actually feel awkward. Salads and appetizers really good, main dishes also well prepared. Wine bottles on 50% sale during July.

I had a tasting menu. It was OK. Nothing to write home about. The food was blend and the sauce not very tasty and creative. Another over rated restaurant. I have eaten in much better restaurant like Scampo Restaurant at the Liberty Hotel, in Boston....More
