It’s casual atmosphere paired with BYOB instantly made me feel at ease. The decor is very hip and current, on trend with mismatched tables and chaired that added to the casual “we are all just hanging” sort of vibe.

The meals are locally grown and sourced, and the chefs have done a stellar job with the pairings!
The staff ,which included the wives of the chefs, were amazing and attentive. I had the scallops and my date had the quail….both were soooo delicious! The veggies served with each were so fresh and flavorful, even the simple green salad was absolutely pallet pleasing. After dinner we had homemade donuts. Need I say more?
