Beautiful decor but the food and service were even better. The pork tenderloin, served on a hash of berries, peaches, and lentils, was one of the best dishes I have ever tasted.

Had yet another fantastic meal with friends- the soups are always incredible... always! Service is great and wine recommendations hit the spot. Another tip: get the sorbet special, you won't regret it. I'm a chocolate girl but here I go sorbet.
