Wonderful birthday dinner with friends for my second visit to this gem with great food and great atmosphere. Service can be a bit spacey, but well intentioned. Drinks and dessert shouldn't be ignored either!

Food was OK (nothing special and a little spotty). Certainly not as good as locals suggested. My husband ordered the duck medium - it came out rare. They were very reasonable about bringing it back to the kitchen to cook it more - but they...More
