The service was wonderful. The two women working were doing an excellent job. Our food however was disappointing. My mahi-mahi was very dry and cold. My sons filet and mashed potatoes were also cold. We have eaten here several times and this was the first time we ran into this problem

This place is a hidden gem! I had never heard of it, but found it on Open Table while searching for reservations for a particular time. My wife and I were not disappointed. The food was amazing! We both shared a cheese board and then both got the filet. The filet was comparable to Brandywine Prime but for a much more reasonable price. The cocktails were made and then brought to and poured at our table, which I thought was classy. The desert (crepes) was amazing!! Our server (can’t recall his name) was attentive to our needs and was very engaging. He made us really feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. The building itself is nice and quaint and pretty quiet which was nice for a change from our usual! (kids climbing all over us) Overall I’d definitely recommend this place. We will be going back for sure!

usually have had good experience here but disappointed this time. the portion of sea bass was small and thin. quality of the main course wasn't commensurate with the price. beet salad was excellent though. Maybe the pandemic has had an effect. Hoping quality will improve over time.,

Lovely lunch today! Was a little nervous about dining out given covid, but restaurant practiced safe, appropriate care.
Service was great, food was yummy! I had a salad with shrimp, we shared a le mer crepe as an appetizer, and escargot. My husband had a burger, daughters had omelette. Delicious!
