I had a cup of curry lentil soup with a grilled cheeses sandwich. The soup was wonderfully rich and a bit tangy. However, the sandwich was very disappointing. There was just a thin slice of cheese which made the sandwich taste more like plain toast.

The food and atmosphere are both 4 star. Service was outstanding. Cloth napkins and crystal glasses add a high class touch. Servers kept glasses full and empty plates removed promptly. We will be back.

Located in a very trndy area. The restaurant and menu fit in well. You can enjoy lunch or dinner after shopping the area specialty shops. The food is very tastey and as I said the atmophere is a casual upscale.

We waited for our food for an hour and a half. Several had drinks and salads, but the drinks took about 20 minutes to arrive and salads arrived around the hour mark. The salads were overpriced and only offered in one size, with no side-salads....More

We were here for business trip. This restaurant is a great local restaurant. We started with fried green tomatoes (great sauce) and wonton (yummy). Then based on review, I had the duck ravioli. The review is a great suggestion. I can taste the fresh duck...More
