Food was excellent, good choice of beers and wines too. The young Gentleman who served us was very friendly and attentive too. A good place for a nice night out if you you enjoy good food.

This is great, reasonably-priced food! They specialize in fresh vegetables, which are often innovatively prepared without being too fancy. We sometimes take out-of-towners there, because it is such a relaxing place to visit and the service is wonderful. And you get to help a good...More
