Service was great. Our server was fantastic. The food however was extremely poor. Everything was over cooked and very dry. I would be embarrassed to serve it. To bad as it’s a cute restaurant. Definitely wouldn’t go back.

Overall it was a good meal with some odd bits. Balsamic reduction on the Caesar salad? Canned baby corn as the vegetable for the osso bucco? Service was good but not consistent. Waited quite a while when done meal to get servers attention just for our bill for example. Not a bad place but will not be back with so many other options in the city to dine.

What a fabulous dinner my date and I had. Everything was very exceptional and this will now be a favorite spot of ours. Full rack of lamb was off the charts!..... The dessert......OMG!

We went on NYE and were very disappointed with the fact that it was a fixed menu. Not the greatest selection from the normal menu.

As always the food was excellent, service was attentive, atmosphere was comfortable and value reasonable.

I find this restaurant excellent to have an enjoyable meal where you can carry on a conversation and actually be heard and where the staff does not rush you to order or leave.

I’m not from the area and was not aware of this gem. The reviews were great so I decided to try a new place for our anniversary. The service snd quality of the food were outstanding. Could not recommend higher. We had bruschetta, the stuffed chicken, and the halibut. All top notch. Service was fantastic and unrushed. Prices are steep, but this is a special restaurant. Not a place I would visit regularly but perfect for a date night, or special occasion. Warm and inviting situated in the mansion. Cozy and yet, there is still a feeling of intamacy. Do not miss this establishment.
