Went during restaurant week so there was a limited menu. However, what was offered was fantastic. Delicious. My daughter and I both left happy and surely will visit again in the future.

Typically we don’t go out in restaurant week because restaurants are overwhelmed and tend to don’t offer their best. But this was definitely an exception. The only downside was there was a bit of a lag between courses but not terribly long. The kitchen was very busy, so it was understandable. The chicken liver appetizer was excellent (truly a fine pate and an abundant portion). I had the halibut with lentils and my husband had the osso bucco. Both prepared to perfection. Halibut was expertly seared in the outside and finished to be very moist on the inside. Raspberry sorbet with ginger was exceptional and my husband had the coconut pana cotta which was amazing. We typically share a dessert but we’re happy to have both this time! Service was great and attentive and we love down-to-earth service with a smile.
