Had dinner here on a Monday night. Menu is limited, so you need to check it out ahead of time to be sure there are selections you want. Had escargot and sweetbreads which was very nice, although the mushroom selection didn't seem to pair well. The gouda cheese was just OK and rather pricey for the selection. The Lobster pasta was terrible. Extremely dry pasta with some lobster served, essentially on the side. At $26, it was a rip off. The lamb dish had some laudable effort put into it, just OK. Salted chocolate ice cream was great. Way too expensive for average-at-best food. Better alternatives close by.

We like this restaurant a lot for brunch and dinner. Food is great but service might be 50/50 sometimes. There are days we had great service there are days not so good.

We loved the ambience of this restaurant. The waitstaff is fantastic , friendly and professional. Their knowledge of the cuisine really helped our meal selections.
The duck was the best I’ve had in this country.
There is a caviar appetizer that is not only delicious but it is stunning and a good bargain for 30$.

Highly recommend this local restaurant led by an extremely creative chef and excellent front of house staff. The menu is extensive enough to please just about all tastes. I had the pork chowder soup to start and the duck as a main. The lamb ordered by our companion looked and tasted wonderful. The prices are reasonable for this quality, there was a decent wine list with many available by the glass and the service team was attentive but not overly intrusive.

I visited here with my sister for a Sunday brunch. The interior is bright and clean. We were seated right away in a comfortable booth. Service was very good, but if you're in a hurry, you may want to mention it when you're first seated. They do not rush you, which is what we wanted, but if you need to get in and out quickly, this could have been an annoyance.

There is a pastry cart from which you can choose all sorts of sweet or savory goodies. We opted to pass on the pastry cart and got Bloody Marys instead. The drinks had an oddly sweet taste and at $12 a pop, are a bit pricey.

Onto the main dish. We split Duck Confit dish and a Dutch Baby (baked pancake with sausage, apple and bourbon maple syrup). Both were delicious. We finished with French press coffee ($4.50 per cup) was meh.

Nice relaxing atmosphere but it did get loud at times because of the brick interior. I liked that we could linger and the food was very good. I would definitely go again and try some other menu items.
