    My husband and I visited on a Wednesday evening during a downpour so there weren't many patrons. We were warmly greeted and seated and enjoyed a delicious Bloody Mary. We split the roasted beet and orange salad. I had the Lablabi and my husband had a chicken dish. We were both happy with our choices and only sorry we were so full we couldn't enjoy dessert.

  • Great Food but Service Issues
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    We were a party of four. Everyone enjoyed their food very much - tasty, fresh, innovative, local - but the service and the kitchen were incredibly slow. I know we waited over an hour for food. I don't mind waiting if the food is exceptional but this was beyond even my usual unlimited patience, especially since the server was not as forthcoming or gracious as he should have been (one round of drinks on the house?) Also, since two six tops were seated on our side it was impossibly loud. I'm going to go back for lunch or dinner on a quieter night and give them another try. Apparently they have a new manager and are working out the kinks of being newly opened.
