    I have eaten at the restaurant many times since it opened. And always the food is enjoyable and very good service. BUT … We were seated in the oddest table. It was impossible for the table in the corner to be served without someone bumping into my chair. I would get up to allow the people seated in the corner to get in and out. I didn’t mind that but I did think that the constant bumping unpleasant and unnecessary. And could have been avoided by a more thoughtful arrangements of the tables.

    Our waitress Becca knew EXACTLY what foods my husband with celiac could eat. Impressive and incredibly helpful! She quickly marked up a menu for him and told him what could be altered.

    Great food and ambience. Unfortunately, the manager was rude to our table, not once but twice. We were celebrating a birthday and were disappointed with the poor service.

    Loved this restaurant! Hidden jewel. We went there for brunch on a Saturday. We were encouraged by our server to order multiple share plates for our group of 8. Each dish was so flavorful and fresh. We thoroughly enjoyed each dish and the unique flavor profiles. We will definitely go again!
