Bad meal tonight - poor service, bread like a rock, don’t care attitude from the wait staff and kitchen. What’s happened? Not their usual standard by far.

Extensive menu with some great options. I loved the gnocchi. It looks small from outside, but upon entering, you'll see that it extends in the back. Has a great open window area in the front. And the service was fast!

Blue on highland is definitely a bit out of my price range, but my husband and I LOVE their burgers (especially the Vermont burger) with their sweet potato fries. Great selection of wine and beer too, especially with local options. Highly suggest making a recommendation!...More

I don't usually write a review unless I have several experiences but will make an exception this time. I went for a luncheon with a dear family friend and her daughter that I had not seen in 10+ years. We had exceptional service from a...More
