    Good, but not great. If I lived in the neighborhood, I'd probably eat there fairly often, but I don't consider it a destination. The food is solid, and the Sunday Supper menu is a good deal.

      I went only once for brunch and liked it very much, the kale salad is very good. My husband went back for dinner after we had brunch and also enjoyed very much. It migh not be a destination place but the food is quite good and service attemptive, and nowadays I much prefer this type of restaurant than the ones with all the hype.

        Do they serve booze or is it BYOB?

          They serve booze. I went recently and really enjoyed my meal - it's a neighborhood spot but it's definitely solid.

        i went quite often when it opened. i liked the clean flavors and it was enjoyable.

        i dont think they change the menu enough to get me interested in coming back. its not hip or exciting or interesting enough to be a destination.

        they have a nice prix-fixe sunday supper that i would check out again.
