    We enjoyed our drinks (wine and an old fashioned) and the meatballs appetizer as our meals. It was all enjoyable. Such a beautiful setting and the service was wonderful. We especially enjoyed Collette, the hostess. She is lovely and engaging. The wines by the glass list is very nice.

    They serve a perfect Lobster Roll Connecticut style (warm with butter) or New England style ( cold lobster salad). We thought we were back in Maine!

    The hamburger was burned on the outside, making it just ok. The salmon BLT was delicious. Our server did not check on us or ask for refills. She did bring us what we asked for. Experience was just ok.

    Our first visit there and it was perfect! We even got to meet the executive chef--always a treat when you're having a wonderful dining experience. My friend had the pappardelle dish, which she loved, and I completely enjoyed the salmon BLT! Highly recommend this spot!
