So second time here with kids 20 and 14. Our first time was amazing. We've never been to a restaurant where every course was perfect. Same with this time, shishito peppers were perfect, broccoli rabe very flavorful, tacos absolutely amazing. It's our new favorite in the valley and I'm a very picky eater. Kelly our server both times is wonderful. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant.

Great restaurant - food, service & atmosphere all tremendous. Couldn’t have asked for a better evening. Would recommend it to anyone living in or staying in that area.

The food was great! The service was excellent. The quiet dining booths in the back were perfect for a date. Quiet enough to have a conversation but load enough background noise from the bar to feel like your out.

The food and service were excellent. Had one minor issue with the desert but it was rectified without question and immediately, just the service you would expect in a good restaurant.

We went for a casual anniversary dinner. The housemade pickles were very good. The rye toast with housemade ricotta was lovely. The strip steak was very good as well, done just as I asked. Overall, the food was very food and enjoyable. Portion size was perfect. Large, but not obnoxious.
The service was excellent. Very friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
The drinks were fantastic! I’m a bit of a drink snob and I had the Old Fashioned Flight. They were all wonderful! I couldn’t decide which I liked best.
Will definitely be back next time we’re in the area.

As usual food was wonderful. I like small plates, love having 2 instead of a bid dinner.
My companion is more traditional and likes a hearty dinner. She had the salmon, loved it and appreciated the amount on her plate. Not overloaded.
I was greeted by name, rather nice.

Casual and low key. Pleasant and enjoyable. Service was grand. The fish dish special on "derby day" was excellent. I would return in a minute!

I hate to say I wouldn’t recommend, but it wouldn’t be the first place I’d tell someone to try. We had a party of 8. The portions were tiny and expensive and very limited menu. The guys all said their burgers were awesome, though. The drinks had pretty much no alcohol in them but the sangria was tasty. Half of our $420 bill was booze, so it was disappointing to pay for mixes and soda. The place itself is charming and eclectic but definitely a pub, so not a place to go if you want a quiet dinner. Great music, very friendly and attentive service. Just needs work on portion size and drinks!

I was told about your so inventive chef by Hope and Mark Wigmore. I am hope’s aunt. We have loved every meal. Service outstanding. Staff very pleasant and attentive. Never annoyingly so. Food superb as we like small plates, instead of big meals. Flat breads particularly good. We have a large family in Farmington and they are all coming to 4. Also all our friends.
Keep it up.

The food was excellent, service was good, a little slow with the check but that’s pretty universal. Pork belly was great, my friend loved the scallops. The beet salad needed more fennel just one tiny skinny slice and I’m a fan. Wed go back in a heartbeat.

We were a party of ten which can be a challenge but everything was perfect. I had the lamb shank special and it was really good! Tasted my wife’s fish special and that was outstanding as well. This place never disappoints

Hidden Gem. Outside does not do this place justice. Handsome room. Food was very well done. Great original menu, however it is small and limited. Perhaps that's why everything was so good!!

Hi Larry, Thank you so much for dining with us, and for the warm review. We certainly do feel like a hidden gem here, but with valuable guests like yourself leaving reviews like this, we hope that more people learn about us each day. We are hard at work on expanding our menu selections, so feel free to check our website in the coming weeks to see the new spring dishes that will be popping up. Thanks again for stopping by, and we hope to see you again soon! Jesse

Found the menu to be very limited - all the veggies were the same and the soup of the day - yup same as the veggie - puréed cauliflower. Ordered the burger - which was very good and the truffle fries were awesome. The drinks were very good as well. The only disappointment was the lack of diversity on the entrees. Basically swapped out the meat on the plates.

Hi Cheryl, I apologize that you did not find the diversity of food options that you wanted. We value your input, and I can assure you that we are actively expanding our selections, as the produce from the local farms increases. While sometimes our menu options may seem limited, we aim for a dynamic menu that constantly changes. We hope that you will consider us in the future, and find that there are new, fresh, local ingredients for you to sample. The smaller the menu, the fresher the food!

Our first time here. We sat at a high top in the bar area where there was a large party so it was a bit noisy but all-in-all things were great. The manager stopped by to check on us as well.

Took my wife here for the pre-fixe Valentine's Day dinner, great evening. First course she had something called "Rye Bread" that was warm home made bread with goat cheese, radishes and something crunchy, I had the pork belly and scallops. Second course I had the short ribs that just melted on the fork, my wife had the Gnocchi with some kind of interesting spices - couldn't figure it our but it was wonderful. We'll go again real soon.

I’m conflicted. This place is more than it appears,very stylish, great cocktails and food is yummy. Service was great too. However it had a very limited menu and very small portions and rather pricey for what you get.

We had the best time! My husband had a steak & I went with the burger. Yum! Both were excellent. Our server was exceptional. Her attention to detail was great. We were so impressed with her I sought out the manager to tell him. I've already suggested it to others. We look forward to going back!
