Good food and reasonable value, always a nice dinner. Felt a bit rushed as they are closing earlier (Open Table did not seem to know this) and the servers were hovering a bit too closely. It did not ruin the dinner but it was uncomfortable.

Two great meals in two weeks. Very impressive. Oysters and duck entree (medium rare, as requested) were my favorite.

We celebrate our anniversary there and love it! Last night, we were there with 2 other friends as well. There was a table for 4 next to us and they were incredibly rude and loud. They graciously moved us into a private room.

We highly recommend it!!!!

This is our go to place for any special celebration. Last night my birthday. We were so happy to have George, our favorite server, working a very busy evening. Food is always exceptional and there is a new menu. We started with shrimp cocktail, and the 4 crustaceans were huge. The sauce is exactly to our liking with horseradish. We both chose ravioli, a real departure from our usual halibut pick. DH had the crab and I chose the butternut squash. In each the sauce was exquisite. We both cleaned our plates. All washed down with a favor, Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc. The maitre d, Jose, is to be recognized for his ability to real all customers and make you feel like the most important client. We really appreciate this personal touch.

I cant say for certain bur the tables were lined up on one side of the wall. Im pretty sure they used to be a different set up. with the new set up it just makes very little room in between the tables. It’s very uncomfortable when your bag keeps falling off the chair from someone passing by Or when the waitress is serving a drink and she cant reach to you. Its just very tight. Overall the service from marianne was good. She was a little forgetful at times but it appeared that she was the only one handling several tables at once. She did maintain a good attitude about serving our group of 4. Food quality was consistent. The dirty martini’s were well made. I found it strange that they served Gin and tonic on a taller glass than I would normally see it. This diluted the alcohol which made it seem like a weak drink. The fig dessert was nothing special. The seasonal items of pumpkin gnocchi and squash ravioli are enjoyable but very small portions.

We dined hear on a Sunday evening.It was very quiet, but we like that. Our server was a bit of a Dingaling. Felt like she was either new or not interested. However, the food was delicious. The lamb
was perfectly done as was the special haddock . We would certainly come back.

We were the only diners eating outdoors and the staff was very accommodating, bringing out a fire pit and checking in on us to make sure we were comfortable. Everything was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. It was a memorable dinner.

Everything was perfect with the exception of the music was a bit too loud. Upon request, they did lower it. We couldn’t hear each other talk. One of my favorite restaurants in the area.
