The outdoor patio was a treat on a lovely evening. The service was mediocre at best. We had multiple people servicing the table and we asked for a lemon for our water and had to ask multiple times and it was never brought out. I...More

I've been here twice and both times were delightful! The last time I went, we ordered the shrimp toast (my personal fave), pork belly scallion pancakes, mustard spaetzle, chicken and peach terrine and finally the branzino. We wanted to order dessert but we were way...More
