Here are some comments from our 5 diners who were there to celebrate a retirement: The Pork chop was wonderful but the accompanying chestnut crema, and guanciale & celery root were served lukewarm. The Potato Au Gratin was a bit milky (i.e. not creamy) and...More

Stopped in for lunch and sat at the bar. Bloody Mary’s were great and the quiche and carnitas & peppers were amazing. Service was top notch as well. We’re from out of town and the bartender gave us some great suggestions on things to do...More
