Nice staff, but service was extremely slow even though there were only three tables of diners. Prices were reasonable but the food was disappointing - competent but underwhelming. The baked brie was just barely warm, not baked, and it was missing the promised fresh fruit though there was a nice coulis. The accompanying crostini were hard rather than crunchy. The steak was not seasoned and the mashed potatoes were bland. The chicken with the fettuccine was dry and under seasoned. We enjoyed the beet salad, the fennel salad and the pesto sauce on the pasta. However, we would not go back.

Great food but be prepared for slow service. Not a place to go if you are in a hurry. Allow 2 hours for supper.

Value of Groupon was not as good as expected - essentially got 6$ off total bill (paid $75 for appetizer, main, and a dessert - total actual value was $81). Appetizers were not great - stale bread with brie, and cooked steak strips passed off as carpaccio. Main courses were very good. Chocolate dessert was great - bread pudding dessert was advertised as 'with creme anglaise' but was served with same amount of creme anglaise as chocolate dessert, essentially a garnish - disappointing. Dishes were plated beautifully. Can get better value closer to home, and not have to pay for parking and deal with traffic in the market, so won't likely return.

The staff should be taught how to open a bottle of wine.

I had such an amazing time!!! Love the menu choices, love the decor, love the atmosphere and your staff was amazing ! I called ahead to make my reservation and got help finding good places to park. The presentation of the food was beautiful!! You should post more pictures on your website as it does not do it justice! The only other thing I would suggest having the music be played outside - if I hear good music it always attracts me to a restaurant.
