I have long wanted to visit this restaurant, and I was not impressed. The tables are way too small to accommodate four people. The waiter spilled milk all over one of our guests - not the waiter's fault, the tables are just clearly too small. The food is good, but quite highly priced and any substitutions are charged as additions. There is better value and service elsewhere.

The fresh herb infused cocktails were really special. Very refreshing stop on a warm day. I also had the beet sesame salad. The sesame nougatine was a tasty addition. Nicely presented and ample serving. Very good, but it would have been nice to have some fresh bread or something with the lunch. Not a big selection for vegetarians.

What to say ... Simply amazing. The decoration, the staff, the products. Paradise on earth. The cheesecake is phenomenal.
Wonderful place. One of the best in CT !

I only went here based on the reviews, and I wasn't disappointed... I had the potato rosti, poached eggs with smoked trout... Excellent... I loved it and will definitely go back before I leave to try some other dishes... The place is calming with great service, coffee is excellent... Do yourself a favor and go...
