Our server, "Saint" Nicholas was excellent. He provided great information on our questions regarding your entrees. He did not rush us and allowed us ample time between starters and entrees.

Everything was delicious. The waiter was helpful, friendly and efficient. I was with friends I hadn't seen in a long time and they allowed us to sit and visit without rushing us out.

After too much dithering about choice of seating, we opted to sit outside under a heat lamp which was cozy. (Other patrons dined outside with their dog!). An attentive, courteous waiter.

The 2 lamb meatballs tapas were excellent in a great savory, spicy tomato sauce -- nice to mop up with the rustic bread that costs an extra $3. The cod was nothing to write home about, however, somewhat dry and tasteless with a typical tomato-ratatouillish flavored sauce. Roasted potatoes were bland as well. Kinda MEH for the price.

We have come here many times when we are visiting Princeton.
This was our first visit since the start of the pandemic.As always the food was excellent and the service fantastic.
We brought another couple and they loved it.
I would definitely recommend the paella.

Food was ok but nothing special. Service was not great. Was expecting better since this is supposed to be fine dining and it's so expensive. Hadn't been there in years and I don't think I'm going back.

2nd visit in less than a week for a delicious lunch! The squash soup is excellent! And the Italian sandwich filled w/ chicken, broccoli rabe and provolone was fantastic! Can’t wait to go back again soon!

I had a delightful lunch with two old friends. It was a beautiful fall day and we were able to sit outside under a canopy. We got there at 11:30 and were the first table seated. We enjoyed the quiet. By the time we left at 1, the restaurant was full. The server was wonderful, friendly and attentive. The food was delicious, freshly prepared with quality ingredients. I wish the restaurant website would include directions to the nearest parking garage, and perhaps a credit for dining there.

The lunch menu was steep. My short ribs with noodles had small traces of short ribs. I believe it was priced at $27. Very, very expensive for very little protein.
Apple cake was fair-too much spice, too little apple.
I used to frequent this lovely restaurant for dinner.
I probably won’t return.

Bread was not fresh and food was average at best. Appetizers were very small. Was really expecting something different and better given the advertisements.

The dining experience was superb in every way. We were made to feel extremely welcome by the staff. The menu selections and wine list at were fantastic. We were reconnecting with a family member after a long time -Pandemic induced… accidentally overstayed. There was zero issue. Couldn’t have had a better experience.

We sat outside, as was our choice, but it was extremely loud on the porch. A large and loud group was seated near us and we could barely have a conversation with our friends.

I will try to come only with friends who will eat indoors next time.
