    The new menu is disappointing. Prices high.....qualities of food very small. I loved going there....but, will not be going again in the future.

    Portions were small. My halibut combined with some sort of bacon bouillon did not taste good. Because of the menu limited my wife chose lamb chops, but needed to ask for some boiled potatoes on the side. We will not be going back.

    They have a nice wine selection. I had a cocktail, 'Elder and Young', and it was exquisite. The food was fine. We had the grilled roasted root vegetables, duck tortellini en brodo, tuna crudo, and the striploin. It was good.

    The only mark against was the server did not wait for all to have finished their meals before offering to clear. Could be just me!

    Overall we had a lovely evening. The food was excellent, and the wine choice are very thoughtful. So kudos to the restaurant for that! The reservation process was great, and we received patio seating because we had a reservation. Excellent work on that front. The wait staff were all super friendly, plenty of smiles and positive attitudes. If I have to put something out for improvement it’s that the wait staff seemed to be disorganized during our visit. Some things arrived later than others and we weren’t sure which server was ours, as we spoke to 2-3 different people. I’d like to see this aspect tighter. That said, I’d happily go back. For sure.

    Wine menu deficient as our initial 4 options were not available. New menu in prep may have caused changes to wine list but poor planning overall.
