Tucked away next to the Thompson Hanson nursery Tiny Boxwoods is a chef driven restaurant that believes in food that feels fresh, rustic and beautiful. We enjoy small menus featuring "from scratch" cooking. Our produce and fish are delivered fresh every single day and we make almost everything we serve in house all the way down to the honey we get from our own bees. Our flatbreads on our meat & cheese board, our house made pizzas, and the day’s catch are just a few items that are prepared each night in our wood burning oven. We are passionate about our food, but we feel even stronger about providing our guests with exceptional service from a well-mannered and smiling staff and don’t leave without trying one of our famous chocolate chip cookies!

    Blood orange cocktail and beet, pear and burrata salad were fantastic. Normally love the lamb burger - this time it was over cooked and dry. Cheesecake was out of this world. Service was friendly, helpful and allowed you to enjoy the meal and conversation.

    I had dinner on Tiny B. Last Saturday Oct 20, 20-8. I initially sat at the bar. The barman (skinny Hispanic guy - brown on skin color) was rude and confrontational with me. He asked me “are you ok???” in a confrontational tone in front of all the people seated at the bar. Definitely embarrassing for a place like Tiny, which I believe is a decent place. My wife said he was looking at her too much and she felt uncomfortable. He was later serving wine from the bottle I purchased even when I told him not to do so. Pretty disappointing experience.

    I went for dinner and everything was delish except the lamb burger. The lamb was topped with goat cheese, which didn’t seem to go with each other. They were two totally different flavors that (together) taste awful. The desserts and everything else was delicious. I swear to you, just get the cookie. ITS AMAZING. Ambiance was great, you got to walk around and look at the plants. Customer service was 10/10. We felt welcome, respected, and even gave us recommendations based on our dietary restrictions.

    Tiny Boxwoods is a gem. I took my girlfriend there for a late dinner, and it was nothing short of sublime. We sat outside by candlelight and enjoyed every moment. It's expensive, but worth the money.

    This was my first time hear but I had heard wonderful things about the restaurant. It did not disappoint. The food was excellent as was the service. I can't wait for the weather to get cooler to enjoy their outdoor area. I will be back.
