We are never disappointed when we eat here. We both had the salmon and polenta. It is difficult to get these two items properly prepared and to the table at the right temperature, but the chef was right on. I think this is the best...More

This unique one man show is amazing. The food, the presentation, the greeting, everything from start to finish is very meticulous and some of the best food in the country! I would highly suggest this place for anyone looking for a great romantic night out....More

A superb, delightful dining experience. Incredible Foie Gras on a caramelized pear, organic greens, tomato & goat cheese salad, butternut squash soup, perfectly seared scallops, firm, lean duck breast, and Crème brûlée. The chef / creator works all roles. A warm, intimate dining experience. Ahhh...More

My only concern about this review is that it might make it hard to get a reservation. Outstanding! One doesn't find a chef/owner at your table throughout dinner almost anywhere. The pear salad is outstanding. All the entrees were great. We had the filet, halibut,...More

The food here is excellent! The menu is not large, but Chef David does everything to perfection! I routinely start with the foie gras, and often have the fillet. Make sure you save room for the dessert! The creme brûlée is amazing!

We visited this restaurant as a special occasion, and had hoped for an elegant french dining experience. We ordered the tasting menu, and a very nice bottle of wine. We were surprised to be the only ones in the restaurant, and it was a Friday...More
