Our food was great, wonderful service, wonderful atmosphere but I had my heart set on the lamb Shank diner and it was MIA???? Beautiful bar area and offerings too! I don't even like bread pudding and their bread pudding desert is WONDERFUL!

We were lucky to get a reservation in August. The food was fresh, homemade, beautifully presented. The waitstaff were attentive but never overbearing nor hurried. The lasagne is perfect.
