4 of us stopped here in the middle of our wine tour. The food was great, albeit a little pricey. The service was outstanding. Definitely a place I would stop again. Beer selection was a great departure from all the wine.

We have been to excellent restaurants and this is not one of them. The service was terrible and our waiter sucked. He was just trying to rush us to get out and was pretty rude. Overpriced food that isn't that great.
