We arrived early (5:30pm) on a Monday evening in August with 2 professional adults and a 17mo old toddler. We got a table with a highchair right away. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Our food was served immediately, before we could even sip our wine! Halibut steak on special was absolutely delicious, although the cooked greens were a bit salty. My husband had rabbit ragu; the portion was large and he could only eat half; he liked it but found it to be surprisingly cheesy and also on the salty side. The wine list was superb, and hence made us quite forgiving about any foodie quibbles. What was not so superb was the clientele. I have never felt so uncomfortable at a restaurant with a child (and we dine out often); our toddler was well behaved but some patrons seemed very displeased to even see a child in a restaurant. We ended up eating quickly, packing up our remaining half bottle of wine, and not getting a chance to enjoy the quaint atmosphere. Even if you are sans child/children be prepared for some serious pretension.

We arrived 1/2 hr. before our reservation time due to a very bad storm approaching and were seated right away, our table was clearly ours for the night. We were greeted promptly, given menus and a drink listing and given time to absorb. We ordered cocktails, which were very nice and then the waitress returned for our food order. She was well informed about the menu and could answer all of our questions. We ordered a pinot noir bottle for dinner, which came room temp. we asked that the second bottle be cooled a bit and it was brought to the table with a marble cooler. We ordered the pear/endive salad (good) seared scallop (great!) little necks (awesome!) a veggie tartlet (good) then for dinner, a skirt steak (amazing taste but a bit too rare, just ask for a bit more cooking time, but the flavor was there!) the buttered lobster (yum!) the pork chop (flavorful and huge!) the tuna bolognese (a signature dish, the tuna is ground up and not fishy, could have been beef or pork for the flavor and texture, yummy, but not like tuna) for dessert we split a chocolate mousse cake (rich and yummy) and a bread pudding that was light and and served with a great ice cream, caramel sauce and raspberry puree. The $80/$100 price per person includes a cocktail, appetizer, main course, 2 bottles of wine and dessert, so without all that it could be under $50 a person. I recommend the Blackfish for a special meal.

Had the tuna bolegnese. Delicious. Cocktails and deserts are great.

Nice, small bar. Food a bit eclectic and some portion-control issues. Two people in my party ordered fish and one serving was twice the size as the other. Atmosphere could use updating.

overall, the food and service was wonderful! i had the foie gras which just melted in my mouth. the atmosphere is way too loud, horribly so. we couldn't even have a conversation over dinner and the waitress brought us a wrong dinner because she didn't hear it correctly. i would recommend that invest in some sound-deadening materials in their ceilings and/or walls.
