This is a very quaint restaurant with excellent service. You do need to make reservations. We had dinner and the portions were just enough for me. Being with friends and family made it even lovelier. This is not your ordinary restaurant or menu. Very unique dishes and make sure you dress well, this is an upscale place. Very good food.

Our server was very knowledgeable and the atmosphere was inviting with that perfect touch of elegance! The mango mimosa was divine!!

We've been twice with large groups and the food preparation and presentation always are magnificent and taste so good it makes one want to write a great review. The most recent visit included salmon cooked to perfection--a nice light crispiness to the outside, but moist and cooked perfectly on the inside. Butternut squash soup was delicious as were the risotto... More

I dined here with my husband and our two best friends, and we were all just blown away with the quality of the food and the excellence of the service. We particularly loved the fact that you can order half-portions of different dishes, which allows you to taste a lot of things! The seared foie gras was a supernova of... More

This is the first review I've written without actually eating the food. Here's why. We were to traveling to Salem (from 50 miles away) to visit a friend in the VA hospital. We allocated plenty of time to get there before the 2:30pm closing time as posted on several websites. About 4 miles before the exit off I-81 traffic was... More

Good morning. My apologies we did not accommodate you. I take responsibility for the inaccurate Closing Time listed on Yelp and Tripadvisor. We changed to a 2:00 Lunch Closing Time some time ago but only updated our website and our Facebook page as well as the hours posted on the front door. As far as our lack of hospitality in... More

The food here is amazing. I especially love that you can choose small portions of most dishes in order to try more wonderful tastes. The only issue I have is the small, cramped space (most of the tables are so close together I feel like I am sharing my meal with strangers) and the fact that it is always SO... More

I've been wanting to come try Blue Apron for a while now and my wife and I finally went tonight. We had reservations and we were given a table as soon as we were greeted. It was busy for a Tuesday night with only a couple of empty tables. We were promptly greeted by our server after having sitting for... More

Lovely atmosphere, great staff. Compared to DC prices, it was a bargain. The flood was wonderful, fresh and well prepared. The small portions..you can choose a larger size..we're perfect for us. Wine selection was wonderful and well priced. And we were there in the middle of a snow storm!

Our table wasn't ready at the time of our reservation but there were a few seats in the bar area available, just not at the bar. I had the half size of the Pan-roasted NC Chicken. It was delicious but the chicken was dry. They had the Seared Faroe Island Salmon, which was nice. If I come back, it may... More
