Neighborhood bistro that keeps you coming back to try the things you didn't have room for .... Marianne's organic garden supplies Warren's kitchen with his beloved fresh produce and both are actively involved in the local food movement.

Chef Warren’s serves fusion cuisine - with a firm base in classic French (due to Warren's Culinary Institute of America education).

The ambiance is fusion as well - bistro style that is at once classic and comfortable with the added feature of an open kitchen so foodies can watch the work in progress.

Marianne runs nightly wine by the glass specials that allow you to try lesser known wine varietals, and the staff serve up amazing mojitos as well as an inventive artisanal cocktail menu.

Warren and his wife Marianne have spent the last seventeen years delighting diners with their worldly cuisine and genuine hospitality.

Our “go to” place for an evening of great food and ambience. The owners make you feel like family. I had a perfectly hand crafted Ketel One Martini to jump start the night. My appetizer of choice is Escargot followed by their duck breast.

Their menu has very innovative (not what I cook at home) and is farm to table dishes. Our waitperson was very friendly and helpful. We had a hard time making a decision about wine and they let us try 2 tastes in advance of the one we selected. It is a smaller restaurant - best seating is along the wall couch on either side of the room. You should make a reservation if you want to eat there.

Best service in town—always impressed with the consistency. Well executed dishes in a spectrum of offerings from creative to classic. (Pro tip: wait to hear the specials before choosing your meal.)

Delicious Tilefish, moist, perfectly prepared. Venison slow cooked with Moroccan spice risotto was a nice swing away from the usual. Our fourth visit. Will be back.

It was my wife’s birthday, which I told them about, and there was no acknowledgement of it. Not even a birthday wish. I felt like they really did not care ! Did not get a chance to enjoy our cocktails when we felt pressure to order our meal. Main entree came when we had not even finished our salads. The attitude was poor. Service was poor but the food was excellent.

A lovely New Year's dinner with live music perfect for the venue and the occasion. As always, the food was delicious... not a single misstep...and the service was professional and attentive yet friendly and relaxed. The decorations for the holiday were festive and classy.
