My brother and his girlfriend came from out of town and I chose this place, not knowing anything about it. We were greeted upon entering and immediately seated. Our waitress was new, but she informed us of the whole menu and what to expect.

There was a fly that stayed around our table that was so annoying. We had to make sure it didn’t get into our food.

All in all a great experience. Now that I know what to expect, I wouldn’t bring my daughter with me again. Just adults.

Exceptional food. My absolute favorite restaurant. I wish I could buy the Parmesan Crusted nuts in a large jar to add to my salads for everyday use. The same goes for your curry & green goddess sauces.

First date night out since the whole Covid thing started. Staff wore masks and gloves as expected, and tables that were occupied were spaced out. Our waitress was new so she wasn't as knowledgable about the menu but she still did a great job. As usual, our experience with the 4-course meal was fantastic. We took advantage of their date night for two option and enjoyed it all. The atmosphere is intimate, perfect for two parents eager for a date night away from their kids. That's why we keep coming back - the experience. I'm glad to see they're still here!
