    Everything was amazing. Food was so delicious! The pork belly was sooo good! The seasonal item we had was the halibut and it was seriously the best I’ve ever had!

    Fabulous small local high end restaurant with exquisite menu options . Food plating is artistically appealing and appetizers and main entrees are delicious and well seasoned. Celebrated our anniversary and service was exceptional. Table seating was very nice with both ceiling and side table heaters . Scallops and Rack of Lamb cooked perfectly along with organic salad and lentil soup accompaniments.
