I went early afternoon so it was quiet. By the time I left it was filling up with college students. The food is casual but great and the selection of beers is impressive! The waitresses were nice and friendly (and efficient). Started at bar and...More

Had dinner on a busy Friday night. Scallops and pork belly, pasta bolognese and crab cake for appetizer. Others at table had coq au vin. We were a large party an service handled it well. The bar was busy well into the night.

We went for drinks and nibbles. Poutine was delicious-the best we have had outside of Canada. The feta stuffed bacon wrapped dates were also very good.

Five old friends shared simple plates, good drafts, vermentino, and 3 hours in the wayback of this long narrow gastro-pub. Friday at 6 full and loud. Low-key waiter grins conspirationally, repeats "That sounds like a plan" and pays attention to special orders. Rectangular clam pizza...More
