    The food was excellent with a variety of choices to suit everyone. Cocktails were original and very good as well. Our waiter was fun, talkative and responsive. We attended on New Years Eve 2022. Not sure if there wasn't enough help or if they're always slow to serve orders. but we were there for approx 2.5 hours ... a lot of wait time for our food especially. There was snow and slush on the steps, parking lot and path which didn't seem to have been shoveled. One elderly person in our group had a lot of difficulty walking because of the slushy mess, and we were afraid he might fall on his way into the restaurant and back to the car afterward. We will return but probably not if there isn't a clear path into the restaurant for walking.

    Service wasn’t up to par with what you’re paying for, with slow clearing and oddly timed delivery. Food was ok but nothing stood out. Crème bruele was runny and inconsistent.

    An intimate and cozy ambiance. Although the menu is small, everything we had was top notch and we tried most of the menu with our group of 7. My only complaint is that I wish there were more affordable wine options.

    If you're looking for a nice date night, I'd definitely recommend this restaurant. Our waiter Culley was very professional and attentive. The food is the best in town and they've got a great whiskey and wine selection. Id highly suggest trying an appetizer or two. My favorite are the crab cakes and the scallops 👍.
