Great atmosphere with plenty of staff to handle it all. From the host, server, and additional servers , everyone was polite, knew the menu, and offered specials with recommendations. The corn and bacon chowder is delish. All the food was good, prepared well, and piping...More

Love the concept of a restaurant being attached/connected to the culinary school. The food was good as was the atmosphere. My wife is a Vegetarian and they were very willing to work with her. They also have a great selection of wine.

We are from out of town and have now eaten here twice. Both times we had wonderful meals. I had the Jamison Farms lamb chops and they were perfect. I’m sure we will be back again.

This place offers excellent service with uniquely prepared food. Is a fusion of Italian and what I would call contemporary foods. The sala with champagne vinaigrette dressing was provably the best salad I have experienced in a long time. I also had the fettuccini bolognese...More
