Who knew that this place even existed. The food was awesome. I had the seafood risotto and my date had the short ribs. Everything was cooked to perfection. We were able to eat outside on the side porch. Wait staff was very attentive.

The food ranges in tastes and features and is quite good. They also have a nice cocktail menu and great desserts. My friends and I have made an effort to go here when in the area.

One of the two best restaurants in our area. Although suitably priced for the quality of experience and food, it's a bit high for our budget, so we have to save it for special occasions. The atmosphere is congenial and warm; the waitstaff is friendly...More
