Travelocity and the restaurant's door say it opens at 8 am. We arrived at 8:10 to be told we could come in for coffee, but the kitchen did not open until 8:30 am. This could have been a problem because we had a 9:30 appointment....More

I had the scampi which I thought was pretty good but my partner had the beef bourgurignon which he did not enjoy, tough meat. Salad was good. Prices better than most in the area but then you get what you pay for.

This little place is a real find! Limited menu but fine choices, excellent food, very friendly staff, nice wine selection, beautiful bar. Only about 8 tables, so best to consider reservations beforehand. Also offers a couple of outdoor tables. Definitely worth dining here!
