          yes. ebbs & flows with talent thru the door but you can follow their schedule online. last time I was there (at least a year ago) a easy rock/folk duo performed.

        I could swear I wrote a review of this place a few months ago, but I can't find it... What I remember: The setting inside and out is very pretty. The service was professional- a little old school, but not stiff at all. We were taken care of by woman who's youthful appearance belied her wine knowlege... but may have contributed to her enthusiasm for the subject! If my wife or I still worked in hotels/restaurants we would have tried to steal her away:) We were a party of 3+ 1 infant. The staff all cooed appropriately at the kid.

        I don't remember much about the food... except that it was very good. I know I liked what everyone had. Not much help there, sorry.

        I do remember the prices being higher than I anticipated. I guess the Watchung crowd dosen't mind. If I had the dough to go more often, I would. I could see this being a nice place to become a regular at, for those close by. But the prices make it a "special" place for me, and there are so many other places to try, that I probably won't be back soon. Now if anyone wants to take me, that's a different story!
