Three cousins were visiting from Indiana, Texas and Hawaii, so I decided to take them to Trostel's Dish because of the tapas-style dishes offered. We could each share a little of each and get a lot of talking in. They have a number of semi-circle...More

Not just a 'Ladies who Lunch' crowd. Business people go here for lunch, as do I. Dinner is even better. Nice wine list. Outdoor patio is great.

I really enjoyed this restaurant with my colleagues. I had the scallop risotto which was quite salty. The other dishes were quite well received. We were pleasantly surprised by the wine which was discounted on Wednesdays. I would return to this restaurant just for the...More

Love this patio! It is not crowded together and a great spot for an after work get together. The specials are also a plus. The burger and brew for $10 is a winner! All around this is will become our "go to" spot.

Very nice atmosphere, a little more upscale feeling. Artichoke spinach dip was the best I've ever had. Good variety on the menu. A little pricey but that's expected. Decent service. Went on a Friday evening without a reservation & there was no wait. Would return!
