Although grilled foods were a little limited, everything about this place was great, including salads and vegetables. Attentive and friendly staff, as well as great wine list.

Enjoyed a nice family meal on a busy weekend evening. Service was prompt and available when needed. Food well prepared and presented. Sourdough bread is always the best! Always a pleasant dining experience!
