the little owl

  • 6

i was really impressed. the food was as good as i heard it would be. the pork chop, i had my doubts, but was very surprised at how delicious, juicy and tender it was.
the raspberry beignets with nutella were great too.
loved it.
nice service as well.

      the appetizer was a perfect small portion. the pork chop was HUGE!!! i took about 2/3 of it home. the desserts were perfect too. and i believe the beignets are a regular dessert on the menu. they were sooooo good.

    2. Did you have reservations, or walk-in? Since the Times did their piece a little while ago, it has gained quite a bit of press and notoriety. I’ve been trying to go, but haven’t had a night where I could accommodate the waiting time.

        we made a reservation...it was a monday night at 6pm! probably not too busy of a time, but it filled up quick.
        very very worth the wait

          They're now on opentable. I made a reservation about a month out.

        2. You definitely need reservations. It's teeny tiny.. but delicious and great service. I loved gravy meatball sliders and scallops apps. Portion sizes are on the smaller side.
