We came, we waited, we left. Well, this is another trendy place with absolutely appalling service (or more accurately 'lack of service'). Upon arriving we were seated and ignored. No one cared when we left. Btw- we had a reservation.

We had a wonderful meal here. Generous portions...we shared a salad and then a main. The special that night was a seafood pasta and it was fabulous. Outdoor patio and friendly service.

Had the brunch and found lots to choose from selections. Ate outside and watched people go by. All 3 of us loved our meals. From the eggs to the burger no one left hungry.

Been here a few times and it is consistently good. Menu is a little limited but even with a big group I didn't hear one complaint about the choice or the quality of food.

Ate here with some work colleagues after work one night. Really, really enjoyed the food and can't wait to go back next time I'm in town. Started with the arugula salad, very fresh and lemony. Had the seafood risotto which was cooked perfectly, every grain...More

God, I loved the place. It was very quiet, given the number of people who were at the bar and my friend and I had a very nice, very productive and fun conversation.
