One of the best restaurants we've been to. Mark and Melody run an exquisite, cozy, superbly managed operation. There's an unsurpassed menu, gracious service (hats off to Jake), and a full complement of good things from the bar. Definitely go here.

The meal was very good but it really was not a WOW dinner. We called the same day and got a table while other guests that night indicated that they had to reserve weeks ahead.
