"We had duck breast, salmon, hanger steak, and venison. The gazpacho was very fresh and tangy. Everything was better than standard but in that delightfully funky, overstuffed setting I expected some surprises. The sauce on the duck was over-reduced I thought. But the recommended wine was good. We felt well cared for, and (a rarity!) we were able to converse. You won't be sorry to visit, especially if you come with friends."

"The quality of the food was amazing. My halibut was as good as the best steak (and I am a steak lover); husband's duck breast perfect, and the salads were works of art. We did not want to eat a lot and felt no pressure to do so. For dessert we shared a Meyer lemon tart with basil ice cream and it was indescribably good. I have to have more of that basil ice cream!"

"The sushi fish, salads and small hot plates were fresh, succulent, and perfectly seasoned and went beautifully together. A thoroughly pleasant experience, especially for the traveler who is feeling the weight of too many restaurant meals. It was heartening to see so many Japanese diners enjoying the food as much as we did!"
