Though the menu for lunch is limited, it is all good. I especially like the salmon offering, and they have great pizzas. One of the best burgers you can get; juicy and always cooked the way you asked for it. The patio is great. Though...More

We had a groups of 5 for a easy supper. We each ordered something different and were totally happy with our choices. I got a delicious pizza. Others ordered sandwiches and small bites. It is a very noisy place, so having a booth is great.

IT people that have never been here before to try something different. Nearest passes place used to be packed but there’s so many restaurants now I suppose it’s affecting it. Still really worth checking out. Typically really good service

We had the half-chicken, salad wedge, fruit & cheese plate and creme brulee. First, staff was friendly, food came pretty quickly even though they were busy. The cheese and fruit tray was attractive, but bland, boring. They forgot the fig jam. The iceberg wedge was...More

Three cousins were visiting from Indiana, Texas and Hawaii, so I decided to take them to Trostel's Dish because of the tapas-style dishes offered. We could each share a little of each and get a lot of talking in. They have a number of semi-circle...More
