Came Saturday evening with reservations. Very crowded. I don’t know how a small place like this cranks out these 3 course dinners. Ceaser salad was small and fair, as was the frisée salad. Roast mussels were extremely tasty but quite chewy. Hubby enjoyed the liver...More

Really enjoyed my meal here. It lost one point because the waiter said they don’t take debit cards and was a bit snippy about it. Lovely location.
