Amazing! The duck pancakes were a wonderful appetizer, the Cheese and Meat Platter was full of wonderful tastes, and the chicken papilotte main course was some of the best chicken I’ve had in years. To top things off, the desserts (especially chocolate mousse and apple strudel) and coffee were some of the best I’ve had as well. I’ll be back for sure.
I could not wait to YELP the sh!t out of this place. I’m in love. My wife and I went for lunch after years of going past it and saying we should try that place.
Well we had a gift certificate and we tried it. We’re kicking ourselves for not trying it sooner.
Inside is a nice decor. Wine on the walls. Great looking bar. Couple of flat screens. We went at lunch but could see this place being intimate at night. Will know that soon. Has a nice little outdoor area but it was too hot to try.
We were met by a cute hostess/server. She was cheerful and fun. She recommended we taste a couple wines and immediately brought samples. Great selections. We are not wine snobs. But I truly felt she knew her business.
We were then greeted by the owner or manager. He was as wonderful as could want. Polite and thankful of our visit. We felt very welcomed. They both helped pick some perfect foods and wines.
We started with the Goat Cheese Starter. It was delicious. You could taste the roasted red pepper. Well balanced and just wonderful.
Then we were recommended the Stuffed Peppadews. Just a revelation. They had just the right amount of spice and garlic with what I though hinted at some balsamic and then wrapped in basil leaves. Just delightful.
We also had some Pot Stickers. Which were also good. However, I wouldn’t go for them again just knowing that they have many more wonderful items on the menu.
We then finished with the wine pulled pork sandwich. Another amazing creation. Very good all around. The bread brought it all together.
We had desert too. I just had to try. And again I was not let down.
I cannot say enough nice things about my experience. I loved it here. The staff made me feel comfortable and the wine recommendations were great.
I read that people didn’t like the wine selection. Like I said, I’m not a snob and we don’t pretend to be. We like red wines and we usually don’t hate too many of them. So take that for what it’s worth. Nothing tasted stale or old and served at the right temperature. It was just a great overall dining experience and they will have my business again soon.
Went to this establishment for the 1st time last night. I have to say the food was excellent!! The flavors were clean and fresh, portions were abundant and presentation was appealing.
Some of the items that I tried: Special Soup; which was a seafood jambalaya – excellent! Nice balance of tomato, seafood, spices. Their beef is top of the line. I spotted the Angus Tartare and had to have it It was an appetizer but it was a huge portion and the quality did not disappoint. Sandwiches are super as well. My friend ordered the Beef Tenderloin and let me sample. Melt in your mouth goodness! Superb. I ordered the Smoked Turkey and Brie and had to finish my meal off with the caramel crepes.
Tried several of the martinis; I can vouch for “The Vine” and the “Key Lime.” My friend had the “Dreamsicle” and again, like the food, all were Superb.
Will definitely be back for a wine tasting and the food, of course! Excellent service and lovely ambiance as well. I have nothing negative to say, which is a rarity for me
Looking forward to a return trip.
