  • Menu changes every so often.
  • After all of the great reviews, I was expecting something creative and delicious. What I experienced was disorganized staff and sub-par quality. Bummer!
  • Went for brunch and really enjoyed the fried sourdough toast with a soft egg and creamed chanterelles.
  • Good spot if dining solo, there's a bar area off the main dining room.
  • Lamb is great!
  • Delicious salads and great wine menu. Awesome place for a vegan looking for a nice dinner.
  • Friday I took friends here and was disappointed. The portions were smaller and too "different." This has been my favorite restaurant now I'll change to Chop Shop.
  • Really fun, lovely atmosphere. And the food was delicious. We loved the summer lettuces and duck.
