This spot is certainly a neighborhood gem.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are so lucky to have suchWe are so lucky to have such a wonderful restaurant in our neighborhood. The food is sooo good. The flavor combinations are so interesting. The burrata was probably my favorite dish, but not too far behind were the scallops on sweet potato. And it never hurts to end a meal with a warm chocolate chip cookie and ice cream. the drinks are just as great. And the staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall a great dining experience.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBull horns galoreMaybe Thursday is a very crowded dining out evening but the noise level almost made me leave immediately. An upstairs table was suggested where it was just about bearable. the food was outstanding and the service was very good. I will try again, perhaps on a Monday night to see if the noise level is acceptable. If I have to scream to my dining partner, not only is it detrimental to the ears but it takes the fun out of an otherwise good dining experience.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent fish dishes.

My girlfriend had the John Dory whilst I played safe with the Scottish Salmon and it was all unbelievably delicious. The beluga lentils and black garlic puree complemented the Salmon perfectly! Needless to say our plates didn't need much cleaning after we were through. The lemon tart was the perfect end to a sumptuous seafood dining experience. Kudos to our hostess too for the prompt service! The ambiance was perfect as well.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and innovativeDelicious food and innovative dishes.
