Glad we kept our 6:00 p.m. reservation here on a busy night. I kept thinking it was simply a "cafe"; however, was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful, funky decor, amazing menu selections, delicious desserts, and outstanding service. Highly recommended.

This was a great choice--our meal was delicious, and the setting lively. I ordered the trout, which was terrific.

My dad and I had an excellent dinner here last night- the food was delicious - we had the Brie with apples and a salad to start, and then had the lamb shank and salmon for dinner. Everything was perfect, including the service!!

We enjoyed a dinner here. The menu had nice selections to choose although somewhat pricey. Our server was gracious but seemed somewhat nervous on the job and had trouble distinguishing items to recommend. Clientele seemed somewhat older than us with no discernible theme to the...More
