Solid seasonal menu. Excellent food preparation, good balance of flavors and textures, as well as very attractive plating. Cozy neighborhood atmosphere and friendly, competent waitstaff. Well curated wine list and good cocktails.

We ordered 4 appetizers, & 1 entrée between 2 of us. The appetizers were all exquisite! As was the Sea Bass. The flavor profiles of each dish was beautifully put together and very well thought out. The service was great. Though the waiter was a little awkward at times, he happily answered all our question about ingredients we couldn't place. The only issue we had was the original entrée want as good as expected given the appetizers. The waiter didn't hesitate to change it to the sea bass for us. Seasonal menu, locally sourced ingredients, wonderful flavor profiles! I recommend it

Going downhill. Hadn't been in awhile and quite disappointed when we went in November. The fish I had was both small and not that flavorful.

Really great food, if on the pricey side. Was here on a Thursday and was busy, so get a reservation. Side note: here only time I have ever been that asked my cooking preference for pork chops (unlike beef, shouldn't pork always be cooked all the way?). Whatever, potential brain diseases aside it was super delicious.

Very nice small restaurant, good and inventive menu. But it's a notch below À Côté in my book.

Great food but to noisy and the tables are to close together.
