    Noise level = quiet on the best outdoor dining patio. New menu items - burrata cheese platter and chicken breast both terrific. Great wine list as always, with lots of good choices at various price points. One of our favorite places.

    We started with the Crispy Duck Spring Rolls and they were crunchy and savory. The dipping sauce was a must to add that sweet and spice. I had the Fish and Chips. I would say above average. The cabbage, fennel and apple slaw was nice and refreshing along side the fried fish and fries. Husband had the Pork Schnitzel. It was very good, the purple cabbage and Bavarian potato salad needed a bit more seasoning and acid. However, still delicious. Highlight of the meal was the Butterscotch Pot de Crème. I will go back just for that dessert! Attentive wait staff and very nice atmosphere.

    Such a disappointment. I had such a great dinner experience prior to this day. Convinced my family to go for Mother's Day brunch. Constantly asking or updates, asking for basic service (like water), food was mediocre, terrible. 😥. Worst Mother's Day brunch I've ever had in 23 years. I get it, too many people, unprepared for the rush, but i made reservations and it didn't help. I wasn't going to comment but decided not to say anything doesn't help. Stay ready so you don't have to get ready. Hope you use this experience as a lesson.

    We visited on Mothers Day and the restaurant was not able to keep up. We were told upon arrival that we may not get a table because they were overbooked. We did have a reservation. When we were finally seated it took about 35 minutes to have our order taken. Food was served about two hours after being seated and we were there three hours. Our waiter did her best to keep up.

    Overall good, but service was not great. Our waiter had way too many tables to take care of. Sat in the outdoor garden, always really nice out there. Recommend sitting there.
