The restaurant is a homey (literallly--it's a converted house) warm, inviting place. This is enhanced by the welcoming motherly welcome given by the hostess. The food was delicious. They had a special fish dish which was amazing.

They do have gift certificates. You cannot go wrong with their specials! Steaks are good but if you go to an authentic Basque restaurant, why not try what they specialize in? Chris and her crew seriously make you feel like... More
