The lamb rillette was like a croquette, but so dry. Needed a sauce on top plus a moister filling. The duck breast was average. Expected better.

From start to finish, it was one of the best meals my husband and I have ever eaten. Our server, Marley, was attentive and friendly. He learned our names and remembered them all night. The food was so incredible. The desserts were the absolute perfect ending to a wonderful evening. We will absolutely be back.

Sat on the patio which has less ambiance than indoors, but it was what we preferred. Service was excellent. Wide variety of wines at various price points. Only negative I could say was portions were a little bit small for the price.

Third time and we had once again terrific knowledgeable server. Our server was attentive and provided mouth watering delectable descriptions of the menu items. The only disappointment was entrees took unusually longer to appear and by the time we’ll after nine pm when we received it was a rushed meal as we had to leave without time for dessert which are very good from previous visits The duck was excellent The rhubarb salad very refreshing although some pieces were a bit chewy. The chicken cooked well was a bit bland and could have used some more seasoning and did not arrive as described with a crispy skin This is still a favorite and I would return and consider this sort of an off night as the two previous visits were terrific .

Our wait staff was wonderful, little slow in getting our drink order but after that everything went very smoothly. Food was delicious. My son had the Chicken Saltimbocca, wonderful except it came with French Green Beans instead of Broccoli Rabe. The beans were barely cooked, need to check these before going out. Other than that it was all wonderful!

From the moment we walked in the service was excellent. Our server, Cassie, couldn’t have been nicer. She explained in detail the menu and was very attentive throughout our dinner. The atmosphere is unique as it is in a old beautifully renovated building. The meals were delicious. My husband had the Thai fish stew and I had duck and both were excellent. We started with the scallops and foil gras. Both prepared differently than we ever had and they were amazing.

Cassie was great but the food was not as good as in the past. Apps were good but the entrees came out lukewarm. The flavors would have been much better if hot. She offered us a dessert but that’s not something we accepted. Just want the kitchen to be aware and serve other patrons a hot meal.

The hostess was nice and sat us earlier than our reservation after asking if we’d like to wait or be seated. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. It was fun joking with him a little. Food was yummy and the drinks were super fun. Highly recommend. After a wonderful dinner we went to the rooftop bar to grab an extra drink. We stood at the bar for ten minutes and was not acknowledged by either bartender. No greeting, no menu, nothing. It was not busy at the time we went but they did serve drinks for at least six other people that came after we arrived. We left without our extra drink.
