This is a terrific restaurant. The ambiance is a bit eclectic and it is vary laid-back. The food was delicious and it's a very small place so not loud (it was also a wet and rainy night so it was not crowded at all). We thoroughly enjoyed it and we're there celebrating a birthday. When the waitstaff learned about the birthday, she brought our dessert with a candle included.

This is a great restaurant for brunch before the matinee at Portland Stage. We enjoyed our breakfasts there -- the hash was terrific. Strangely both the cocktail that I had (name escapes me, proseco and cherry juice) and the eggs Benedict looked a little ho-hum. But both tasted very very good. I'd suggest a tiny more effort on presentation. But yes, we will definitely go there again.

The food was excellent. I had the Brick Chicken over Paramesan Mashed - fantastic. The chicken just fell off the bone, no effort, so tasty. I would definately eat here again.

I so enjoy my brunches before ushering at Portland Stage. They make reservations easy and Andrea always greets and welcomes customers. It is a most pleasant dining experience.
