Have been here twice for special occasions.. Once for lunch in their tavern room and another for a formal dinner in their dining room. Both times the service, food, and atmosphere was impeccable. The first time (for dinner) Josh and I ordered the seasonal chef’s tasting menu which was out of this world. An eclectic mix of fresh ingredients, all in season that were delicate yet very flavorful. For lunch I opted for the beet salad and grilled monkfish which had a sweet and savory flavor because of the raisons, curry combination. Both were excellent and extremely light and didn’t leave you feeling too full.

For dinner (our first time at the restaurant) we had to make reservations about a month in advance however once you eat here you are able to call the night before if you wish to book for your next visit. Lunch at the tavern is firs come first serve basis.

They will really take care of you here. The second time I came in to see if I could make a reservation they welcomed me back (I have no idea how they remembered me as it was more than a couple months later) but was nonetheless very flattered.

The only problem is no restaurant compares so our standards for food are very high now, hah!
