The food was delicious. They have a good understanding of gluten allergies and can offer gluten free options. Good wine choices and great desserts. Best of all was the service!!!!

Five of us enjoyed our dinner here immensely. We deliberately ordered 5 different entrees so we could taste everything and we enjoyed each one of them! Attentive service and good dessert as well.

It has a very inventive menu and sitting in the back patio on a warm day is great. The portions are large the service is prompt and the prices are fair. I've been there a half-dozen times and never been dissapointed.

I would recommend calling the restaurant. We just walked in on a Friday night and got a table in the back patio with no problem.
