    Like any good foodie place, portions are smaller than one would find at a typical "American" style restaurant. However, the quality of food is outstanding. We took my in-laws and their only complaint was the small portions on the appetizers and the bread to start off with. The bread was 1 small roll each, with a pesto sauce. Excellent taste, but definitely could have had at least 1 more each. Appetizers were also excellent, but for $11, our crimini brucshetta was 1 medium sized piece of french bread. But flavor was outstanding. Bottom line - superior food, but give time to eat here as an experience and slow down and enjoy the excellent flavors. Don't go if your looking for buttloads of food. You will leave sated but not stuffed.

    The farm-to-table daily menu meals were incredible. The food well surpassed the expectations set by the lacking ambiance. Don't let the limited menu or mediocre decor deter you. I had a simple roasted chicken and my husband had lamb shanks. We started with shrimp fritters and ended with lemon tart. Everything was extremely delicious.
