Amazing dinner served at the local, intimate, A Toute Heure. Everytime I have eaten there it has always been terrific. The chef does an outstanding job creating new and interesting dishes from locally sourced products. The staff is friendly and attentive. If you are a Foodie, you will love it.

The menu is limited, and if you don't get lucky on the specials you may have to settle. We had the "classic mussels" appetizer, which were essentially in a butter soup. This is not to be confused with Brussels classic. We had steak which was undercooked and lukewarm fries, and there was a dead bug on an adjacent table. Tonight... More

When we arrived, we were surprised that four parties had to be squeezed into one corner (about 1/3) of the dining room. I wish that restaurants would realize that patrons like to have some space; some elbow room is nice. After this "slow start," we were very happy with our visit. The food was fantastic: worthy of the high reviews... More

Went for lunch with a friend. Get there by 12 or you may have to wait. There were many good choices lunch. I had a great fresh turkey sandwich. I really enjoyed my lunch. The dessert choices were great and was also delicious. I recommend for lunch. I'll have to go back again for dinner sometime.

The menu changes monthly. Dishes are unusual and unique. Food is well prepared and very tasty. Service is great, not rushed, well paced. The restaurant is small and comfortable. Great place for a nice evening out. Excellent.

If you're looking for something a little different try this restaurant. Interesting menu and friendly service. A little over priced but always crowded!

The is a quaint family run restaurant with great service, delicious food, and a relaxed atmosphere. We were very pleased with the service and every aspect of our meal. It's on the expensive side, so for us - it was a special treat. But, we also can't think of another restaurant which has a more pleasant atmosphere and such friendly... More
